It’s not often I fall in love with a notebook… OK, who am I kidding?! I love all things stationery! However, when I saw the Field Notes “Lunacy” Limited Edition Pocket Memo Books for Fall 2016, I just knew I had to have them. I even went as far as pre-ordering them!
The aptly named “Lunacy” notebooks began as a basic concept to celebrate the Harvest Moon and it flourished from there. Each of the 3 books features a die-cut showing a phase of the moon – crescent moon, half moon and full moon.
The embossed black cover has a leather-like look and feel to it. The front cover features an embossed Field Notes logo with a subtle hint of varnish and the die-cut shows the glossy moon beneath. The back cover features the full moon embossed. The books are bound with black stapes and the 48 inner pages are a very light grey and feature a reticle grid. But that’s not all…
The “Lunacy” books also feature many facts about the moon such as its orbital speed, axial tilt, radius, circumference, surface area, a list of humans who have visited the mood (sadly, the only human to visit the moon since the early 1970’s is Dr Eugene Shoemaker and that was in the form of his ashes aboard Lunar Prospector in 1999) and much, much more. There is also a handy mini guide on how to kill a werewolf and how to avoid becoming one!
The dimensions of the Field Note Memo Books are 89mm x 140mm. The perfect size for my Traveller’s Journal… However, these “Lunacy” books are so nice, I’m not sure I could bare to write in them! I may just have to purchase another set, just so I can keep one set perfect… but I’ll have to be quick… These are limited edition!
I puchased my Field Note “Lunacy” Edition Memo Books from Pocket Notebooks, but, unfortunately, they’re now sold out. If you’d like to purchase them, please try:
