Some Field Notes are “FieldNotes-ier” than others, and this Winter 2023 edition, “Heartland,” might be the “Field Notes-iest” yet!

Field Notes were born of the vintage agricultural and industrial pocket memo books that Field Notes co-founder Aaron Draplin has been collecting for years. The company is also a fan of mid-century printed ephemera like the Parks Association posters that inspired the “National Parks” Editions. 

Putting this all together, they asked artist and screen-printer Dan McCarthy - who illustrated three of the covers from the National Parks Series - to create a rural panorama across the covers of three books, each depicting a different time of day: sunrise, midday, and evening. The results are lovely combination of theme, colour, and utility that really capture the spirit of farm life.

The pocket-size books feature McCarthy’s artwork printed on sturdy 100# Domtar Cougar cover stock. The body of the book is Finch Opaque 60# text with a “Big Sky”-blue 3/16" grid. Each book features a unique set of “Practical Applications” based on the daypart illustrated on the cover, for example:

  • Pastorals to Paint
  • Cities to Fly Over
  • Things to Churn
  • Tractors I Have Known
  • Bedtime Stories
  • Odes to Heated Blankets
  • Moonshine Hiding Spots!

You’ll find these books indispensable whenever you take a moment from your busy day to catch your breath and collect your thoughts — on the farm or wherever else you may happen to be.

The books are packed in a random order, for more variety on display, but all 3-Packs include all three cover versions.
