Field Notes “Coastal” Edition

Yesterday was the first day of spring 2018 here in the States, and to celebrate, the folks at Field Notes unveiled “Coastal”, their latest quarterly limited-edition memo books. Each 3-pack depicts a topographical map of a US coast, for which you can select East or West when ordering:

“Coastal: East” reveals the Atlantic coast from Maine to Florida. “Coastal: West” features the Pacific coast from Puget Sound to the Mexican border.

You might not find these maps useful as a navigational aid, but we think you’ll dig the organic shapes and topography they depict. The thing we love most about this edition is also why it’s difficult to photograph. Depending on the the angle of the light, the two holographic foils can appear to be almost any color, although they start as a deep gold on the shore and a rich, aqua blue in the water.

The inner pages of each memo book are adorned with the same split-fountain-applied reticle pattern that you see on the covers, alternating between “Coastal Blue” and “Coastal Green” colors. This is a wonderfully oceanic edition, and I love the ludicrous amount of effort that went into its promo video:
