Field Notes Harvest Notebook
Field Notes appropriately launched these on the Autumnal Equinox 2021. Noted American artist John Burgoyne’s illustrations grace the covers of the six Memo Books in this series, featuring fruits and vegetables commonly harvested in the Fall. Two 3-Packs (Pack A and Pack B) contain all six versions. These packs are perfect for the foodie or gardener on your gift list.
The illustrations are embossed into a new – and perfect for this edition – cover stock. Mohawk’s “Renewal” line uses rapidly renewable resources. We’ve selected their “Fiber White,” which is made from hemp fiber blended with post-consumer paper waste and responsibly sourced virgin fibers. This lovely and sturdy cover stock takes the embossing beautifully and makes the most of John Burgoyne’s delicate ink-and-watercolor technique.
John’s intricate and instantly recognizable illustrations regularly appear in Cook’s Illustrated, National Geographic, and other publications. We visited him on Cape Cod and had a chat about his work and career.
Field Notes are the creation of Michigan native Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Company. You can learn about the genesis of the product here.
