This limited edition Field Notes 3-Pack is "The Shenandoah," which features three green French cover stocks that match the leaf color of three trees found at Shenandoah National Park: the Sweet Birch, the Chestnut Oak, and the Red Maple. Platinum Converting in Itasca, Ill. fused each of the green papers to a contrasting French text-weight paper that matches the tree’s fall foliage.
Because of the duplexing (when you take two different colored papers and fuse them together so that they become one), these notebooks are extra sturdy. Even the interior pages have a bit more heft as they are upgraded to 60#T Finch Opaque “Bright White,” with a 3/16" graph. Each features an illustration of a leaf on the back with some facts about the tree. The belly band is real birch veneer as it looks so darn good with all that green.
Sold in a three-pack, included is:
(1) "Jellybean Green" exterior with "Safety Orange" interior

(1) "Factory Green" with "Electric Red" interior
