Field Notes Rams edition

The Rams limited edition of Field Notes is a collaboration to celebrate the release of Gary Hustwit's new documentary film "Rams" about legendary industrial designer Dieter Rams. Dieter Rams graduated from the Wiesbaden School of Art. And in 1953 began working with Frankfort based architect Otto Apel. In 1955 he was recruited to work at Braun, where he became the chief designer (a position he held from 1961-1995). Rams designed the famous Sk-4 record player and the D series of 35mm film slide projectors among many other things. 

This edition features a light gray cover with the ten principles of good design on the back in orange and a darker gray. The cover has a soft touch varnish on it and feels reminiscent of both the Drink Local and Unexposed editions.

The paper on the inside is the standard French 60#t opaque smooth with a dot grid ruling in a "T3 light gray". The paper holds up well to ballpoints and gel pens, and does pretty well with fine fountain pens. The paper is smooth as usual, and I really like using pencils on it. The ruling on the page is quite light and almost disappears with writing on the page.  








I think Field Notes have done a great job on this edition and it goes great with the the film. If you have any questions about this review or others, or have any suggestions for future reviews feel free to email me at Irvsstationery@gmail.com or comment below.Thanks for reading and have a great day!!!
