With Spring Training getting started, it seems a good time to remind fathers, sons, wives and daughters about Kevin Guilfoile’s splendid memoir about his Dad, Roberto Clemente, and a mysterious bat. A Drive into the Gap, from Field Notes Books is a short, delightful, touching story that deserves a place on any ball fan’s shelf. Check out an excerpt and a short film, and then pick up a copy or two.

We never purposefully set out to target fountain pen users, but as things turned out, Richard Binder (who happens to be Bryan’s college buddy’s father-in-law) was one of our first customers, and he wrote a nice review back when we first got started, and that’s led to a devoted FN/FP relationship ever since. National Geographic made a great film featuring Richard at work, and while it doesn’t have anything specifically to do with FIELD NOTES, if you dig our notebooks, and especially if you love fountain pens, we bet you’ll find it interesting.

We got a call from the crew at Space, a sweet new co-working community in Chicago. They had an idea, and even more importantly, they had a vending machine. Tada.

If you watched our Ambition film, you’ll remember the scene at 1:20 where Shea tucks the package in a big box atop the handcart that Tyler’s pushing to the freight elevator. Turns out we just left it in there and mailed it, and it was returned today with three “Insufficient Address” labels. That’ll happen when you just make up an address. Sorry, USPS!

The Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room opened on December 5th in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. All of Starbucks small-batch Reserve coffees are roasted on-site. The 15,000-foot space in a historic 1920 building offers tours of the roasting process, a tasting room, and a shop selling Reserve coffees and limited-edition gifts commissioned just for the Roastery.
FIELD NOTES was happy to be involved, we’ve put together an all-new 2-pack of our larger 4 3/4″ x 7 1/2″ Note Books available exclusively at the Roastery. The covers are Graphic Wood Technology’s PureVeneer birch (real wood laminated to paper) and stamped with copper foil. Bound inside (with copper staples) are 64 orange dot-grid pages and coffee facts and figures. Notebooks and coffee go together like… now that you mention it, pretty much nothing goes together like notebooks and coffee, so if you’re in the Seattle area, you can pick up a pack right now!

It was only a matter of time: the math geeks at Reddit came across the “Free Clic Pen” offer in our Arts and Sciences edition. Arts and Sciences is still available, and the prize remains unclaimed.

First, we mailed out our Fall 2014 edition to COLORS subscribers and then we revealed the edition to everybody else. Well, maybe revealed isn’t the right word. In any case, have a look, we think you’ll love it.
