Field Notes has always drawn from some pretty interesting places when it comes to inspiration for their limited Quarterly Edition notebooks. Adding to the their collection of Campfire, Blue Book and Utility edition notebooks are the new Dime Novel notebooks. If you’ve never heard of a “Dime Novel” (don’t worry, we had to look it up, too), the story is fascinating. They were originally produced in the mid-to-late 1800s by Erastus and Irwin Beadle as small pieces of genre fiction that could be carried in your pocket and were adorned with an iconic orange cover. Beadle’s Dime Novels eventually went the way of Kleenex tissues and became the name for any small work of the written word that could be easily carried around. The 72-page Field Notes Dime Novel edition serves as an homage to the original with a dusty orange cover and similar size, but the construction far exceeds that of the originals with Strathmore Premium 70# paper that’s Smyth-sewn before being glued into the 100# French Paper Co. Construction cover. If you’re anywhere near as much of a notebook junkie as we are you’ll want this in your stash.
