Field Notes’ 59th Quarterly Edition, “Foiled Again,” revisits hot-foil stamping in which metallic or pigmented foils are applied to paper with heat and pressure. The process was originally patented in 1892 by Ernst Oeser of Germany, replacing the manual application of gold leaf in the book industry. By the 1950s, plastics improved the foils and provided new surfaces, resulting in many new applications across printing, packaging, and other industries.
These memo books feature intricate artwork illustrating mathe Field Notes manufacturing process. The illustartions are hot-stamped with silver foil on shimmering Neenah Pearl "Indigo" cover stock Inside you’ll find 48 pages of 60# Finch Opaque text stock, ruled with silver ink and bound with 3 staples.
Also new to this edition is a matching tuck box featuring the cover art in reversed colors: blue foil on Neenah Pearl “Sterling” stock. The box contains and protects three Field Notes until you’re ready to use ’em, and provides a safe home for completed books.
Each memo book measures 3-1/2" wide by 5-1/2" tall.
