Extra! Extra! Field Notes have been trying for years to get this notebook right and have finally released their take on the iconic reporter's notebook, the 'Byline' edition, created with the help of John Dickerson, veteran reporter and host of CBS's Face the Nation. Be prepared to whip it out, flip it open and take note with this 31st Field Notes limited release, which comes in a set of two (double the trouble!) and will only be available for a short time.
Featuring 70 ruled pages, a cover to protect the double spiral binding, a slightly narrower shape for easier one-handed holding with a lay-flat design and a handy back cover pocket; these reporter notebooks are perfect for the office, classroom or back pocket. As usual, the inside covers are jam-packed with helpful information including a map of US time zones and lists of journalism terminology and proofreading marks with additional space to write your contact details. There is a handy back cover pocket that include a fun mini-broadsheet newspaper, adapted by John Dickerson from his upcoming book, Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories from Presidential Campaign History. The paper tells an interesting story from 1803, written in the reporting style of that time.
Field Notes notebooks are well known as the best pocket notebook, made from durable materials for robust use. High-quality memo books with an interesting feature, the 'Byline' limited edition set of 2 notebooks are a wonderful gift – although, you may be tempted to keep them for yourself!
