Field Notes “Lunacy” Edition: Things I Like (A Lot)

Field Notes Lunacy

You know what really is lunacy? Being so busy you have no time for breakfast or saying anything more than “bye” to your family, but putting everything down for a bit because the new installment of your Field Notes quarterly subscription has just arrived. In this case, good decision.

The new Field Notes quarterly limited edition is called Lunacy, and it’s really a good one. Even for fountain pen users, who sometimes are left out of the Field Notes fan base.

  1. My notebooks came in today, and I am thrilled. So far I’ve tried 3 different pens with it. No problems at all. Thanks again for the blog note on these!! 🙂

  2. I think the thin moon phase here is usually called a crescent moon.

    Thanks for the review! I’ve wanted to try out Field Notes since I heard about them, but read that most of their products weren’t very fountain pen friendly. Reading here that this edition does play well with fountain pens, I decided to order a set. It should be arriving soon, and then I’ll get to try out their paper first-hand. 🙂

      1. You’re welcome. The Moon phases are also named on a diagram on what I guess is page 2 (the white one on the back of the moon picture that shows through the cover).

        I got my notebooks a little while ago, but didn’t try one until recently, and I can confirm that these are fountain pen friendly. There’s basically no show-through at all. A pen I recently filled even dripped onto the paper and it took me a few seconds (I guess) to grab a paper towel and dry it up. That spot is about as big as one square of the grid the reticle grid marks out, and it’s only lightly visible through the back of the paper. That’s pretty good, if you ask me. In a way, it’s too bad the notebooks are so small (only 24 sheets, 48 pages).

        Also, I think your description of the paper is a off a bit. Going by the specs in the back of the notebook, the grayish paper that make up almost all of the notebook is 60 pounds. I think it’s the white paper that’s fully printed and thus not really usable for note-taking is the 70 pound paper, but you can check and confirm.

        Thanks again for the review.

  3. Aw nuts! You Americans get all the nice stuff. I asked the Field Notes people one time if I could subscribe from overseas and they said no. Damn their britches! 😀

    1. That must have been a long time ago because I’m from abroad too and they allow me to subscribe…pay for postage once and they deliver 4x. Good deal if you really love Field Notes.
