The Reporter's Note Book

People frequently asked Field Notes to make a Reporter’s Notebook and one person in particular was adamant about it. So they did. Their Summer 2016 “Byline” Edition was apparently exactly what people had hoped for. It was an instant classic, and quickly sold out. Then even more people wrote to ask them to make more Reporter’s Notebooks. So they did. They’re called “Front Page” and are now a permanent part of their line.

For the 2021 re-reprinting of “Front Page,” they retained the heavier 130#DTC Neenah “Wrought Iron” stock, but brought back the “Federal Blue’ ink. The innards remain bright-white Cougar 70# text paper with light gray college-ruled lines. The Double-O-Binding is still black rather than “Byline’s” silver. It looks and feels great, a nice balance between the original “Byline” and the 2019 “Front Page.”
