Joining the Chicago Edition in Field Notes Hometown Series is a new 3-Pack celebrating the Northwest Headquarters in Portland, Oregon. The city sits astride the Willamette River near its confluence with the Columbia River and is the home of Field Notes co-founder Aaron Draplin. Portland also boasts a slew of awesome retail locations carrying Field Notes products.
The cover is the standard French Paper Co. Dur-O-Tone 80#C “Packing Brown Wrap” featuring Portland’s green, yellow and blue flag (ranked by vexillologists as America’s seventh-best municipal flag!). Inside, you’ll find a new set of PDX-centric Practical Applications, and the standard Finch 50#T “Bright White” graph paper.
Here’s your memo book for navigating the bridges, food truck pods and pour-over coffee joints in the City of Roses.
