Field Notes started making notebooks in 2007 and they always were small enough to fit in your back pocket. With the best-selling Pitch Black Pocket Notebook so well-loved, it inspired them to finally create a larger version.
At 4.75"x7.5" in size, the Pitch Black medium-size notebook has a custom-duplexed cover from the French Paper Company in Niles, Michigan, which is two different types of paper bound together. On the outside is "Blacktop" and on the inside is the Field Notes standard “Packing Brown Wrap.” The process to create such a unique notebook was painstakingly long, but the final result is worth it.
The dot-grid interior is flexible enough for you to write, doodle, create to-do lists, jot down notes, or whatever you need to capture. It's the perfect size to keep on your desk, on your nightstand, or in your backpack, briefcase, purse, car, or anywhere else you need just a little bit more writing room. Sold as a 2-pack.
