Stalogy 016 notebooks

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

At last! Stu has finally taken heed of one of my pleas!

A gazillion years ago, when I was wittering about my writing notebooks (you can see the post here) I bemoaned the fact that Nero didn't sell B5 notebooks. Well, only 2 years later, Nero does! And what a notebook they are too!

Enter the magnificent Stalogy 016 notebooks, available in green, blue, yellow, grey, red, or black covers.

The one that came with my Field Journal was a dot grid notebook.

I can comfortably use an A5 notebook on my desk without bumping into my electronics. So - what do I use? As you may guess, I have a lot of choice. If we sell it here, I have used it. I’m...

The 27 Club

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

The four artists are, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. That, Ladies and Gentlemen is one hell of a line up. Before we get into that - it’s worth mentioning that both Janis Joplin and Brian Jones (who formed a little band called the Rolling Stones) both qualify for this club too.

Field Notes Vignette

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

From the guys at Field Notes:“Two stippled “Charcoal Gray” books and one super-bright “Terra Green” book make up each 3-Pack. We’ve also included a set of Field Notes-themed insert cards for you to play around with, to see how the “Vignette” personalization system works. But after you try those out, get to work on your own. Because that’s what this release is really all about.To that end, there’s a tool in each pack to frame and crop existing images (or fabric samples, maps, anything flat, really) to the proper size. We’ve also made a simple web app to shoot, adapt,...
