Write Au Naturale with Field Notes’ Shelterwood Notebook

write au naturale field notes shelterwood notebook line header copy

Whether you’re a aspiring novelist or a soon-to-be naturalist, you never can tell when creativity will strike. Everyone from our founding father Benjamin Franklin to the man behind Seinfeld carried a pocket notebook for jotting down their thoughts and epiphanies, each adorning the pages with marks the good ol’ fashioned way. However, whereas moleskin and fiber notebooks have become the norm for most writers and like-minded men, Chicago-based company Fields Notes offers a more natural alternative with its limited edition Shelterwood notebook line ($10 a three-pack).

FNC22_ShelterwoodD800While most notebooks are made from wood, Field Notes seasonal offering is made of wood (or so the company saying goes). The notebook covers are finely sliced from actual American Cherry harvested from the snow-capped woods of southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, and later bonded to a substrate of kraft for added durability and rigidness. As detailed in the video below, the American-made notebooks are sustainably produced from start to finish, culled from several 60-foot logs that are converted into 5,000 feet of “sheer veneer” within a factory heated using recycled wood pellets. Each notebook is unique, measuring a standard 3.5 x 5.5 inches yet sporting a distinct woodgrain texture, while offering more than 40 pages of 70-pound stock paper on which to write. Though faint, the notebooks are ruled in “Maidenhair Green” — a moss-green ink — and bound together with three sturdy, gold staples. Talk about a giving a whole new meaning to the popularly-established phrase “in your back pocket.”
