Field Notes - Signs Of Spring - 3 Pack - Spring 2022 Quarterly Edition
Despite the weather in Chicago, and, well, everything else, hopefully you're feeling a touch of optimism and anticipation.
It all started when Field Notes located a batch of Mohawk Via Vellum 80# “Yellow,” a stock they have always loved but never found the right project for, until now. In their estimation, the finish and structure of this paper was absolutely made for embossing and debossing.
The covers are heavily debossed all over, with three original graphic patterns based on flowers that are among the very first to appear in the North American Spring each year. Then the covers were hot-stamped with three luscious, reflective Kurz Luxor Foils.
The dot-graph insides are made from Strathmore’s Cambric 70# text, a truly superb paper. The subtle, linen-like texture gives it a ton of character that writers and artists are really going to love.
