Field Notes - Haxley
THESE WILL (SUBJECT TO CUSTOMS) BE IN OUR STICKY MITTS ON MONDAY 18th DECEMBER, READY TO POST TO YOU BY FIRST CLASS POST!
For this edition Field Notes called on an old friend illustrator Jay Ryan.
During October, Jay set himself a goal of creating one small ink illustration each day. These drawings revealed a story about a bear and his squirrel neighbours. Filed Notes followed Jay’s progress on Instagram, and found the drawings irresistible, and they knew that they’d look great in a special Field Notes edition. Jay agreed. He revealed the bear’s name is Haxley, and that this story is sort of a preamble to a larger project that he’s been kicking around for years.
The Haxley includes two 64 page notebooks. The first is a story book with ruled pages alongside 31 black and white drawings by Jay. The second book is a sketch book with blank pages, maybe to start your own story?
