Field Notes notebooks are well known as the best pocket notebook, made from durable materials for robust use that are proudly printed and manufactured in the USA.
Field Notes are handsome, soft cover notebooks inspired by the vanishing sub-genre of agricultural memo books and by the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list. Their quarterly releases keep this pocket notebook brand fresh and one we highly anticipate at Milligram!
So where does the inspiration from this brand come from? Field Notes know their roots — check out this video showcasing co-founder, Aaron Draplin talking about how he has collected these memo books over the years, “rescuing them” from obscurity.
These Field Notes notebooks, and the National Crop Edition specifically, owe their existence to a tradition of promotional memo books distributed to American farmers over the last hundred years by seed, tractor and other agricultural companies.
