80-Page Steno Book

FN-11           $9.95

Stenography, or “shorthand,” is a writing system designed to increase speed and/or space-efficiency, most often used in journalism, medical, legal, and business environments to transcribe the spoken word.

THE STENO is 6″ by 9″ with a black Double-O Wiring spiral at the top so it lies flat, open or closed. Inside you’ll find 80 pages of 70# “Bright White” paper Gregg-ruled with a fine, soy-based application of “Double Knee Duck Canvas” light brown ink. The covers are Newark Paperboard Mills 60 pt. “Super Duty Chipboard,” with a screen-printed 1-Color application of “Dictation Smudge” black ink.

Vintage Memo Book Archive

Men who molded America came from farms and plantations — farmer statesman of the past like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. All of this, on the cover of a long-forgotten memo book, luckily dug up by little ol’ me somewhere in my loose travels. He handed it over to his roommate Eric Lovejoy, who then brought it down to Field Notes West here in Portland, Ore.


Field Notes Public Service Announcement

Penmanship practice, carefully crafted lyrics, a missive pleading for parole, passive aggressive public notices, a lover’s note folded into some tabbed triangle thingie and maniacal lists of whatever you can dream up worth listing. Pretend you are in prison, and hatch an escape plan, complete with cool underground maps, tunnels schematics and “what you’ll do with your new life on the outside” hopes.



Devoted Field Notes fans have asked for a larger notebook, something to keep on their desks to go along with our pocket-sized and portable originals. It’s time to start planning your summer road trip and we can help make it great with our new ROAD TRIP KIT. I’ve never used a pencil that smells this strongly of cedar and have seldom ever used one to match it. So today we’re announcing the new Field Notes Brand STENO BOOK.
