Field Notes End Papers Edition Review

End Papers is the fall 2018 limited edition of Field Notes notebooks. Right off the bat I'd like to say that this is one of my favorites. This edition is an all new size for Field Notes coming in at 3 1/2"x7". This size makes it very close to the size of the Hobonichi Weeks planner. It has 68 pages that are Smyth sewn into three signatures and glued to the cover. The most stand out feature lends this notebook its name. Field Notes has gotten permission from the University of Washington to reproduce two marbled paper patterns as end pages in this edition. The green book features a "Schrottel" pattern and the blue a "Antique Straight" pattern.





The Paper on the inside is Mohawk Via Vellum 70#T "Pure White" that should perform well with most fountain pens and does superbly well with pencils. This paper has a decent amount of tooth to it so expect some feedback. All the pages on the left are blank while all the pages on the right are lined. I really like this setup and think it would be great for a story book or some type of pictorial journal.






 The first Lamy was running out of ink. Thats not a paper issue.


The covers feel incredibly sturdy and are made with French Paper's "Timber Green" and "Nightshift Blue". The books fit easily in the back pocket being the same width as their standard memo book, but due to there height they do stick out of the pocket considerably.

I think Field Notes have done a great job on this edition as always. I would be interested in seeing Field Notes adding a version of this to their regular lineup as part of a "Signature Line" of notebooks along side the current signature books. 

As always if you have any questions about this review or others or have a suggestion for a future review feel free to email me at Irvsstationery@gmail.com or comment below. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
