People frequently asked Field Notes to make a Reporter’s Notebook and one person in particular was adamant about it. So they did. Their Summer 2016 “Byline” Edition was apparently exactly what people had hoped for. It was an instant classic, and quickly sold out. Then even more people wrote to ask Field Notes to make more Reporter’s Notebooks. So they did. They’re called “Front Page” and are now a permanent part of our line.

For their re-reprinting of “Front Page,” they retained the heavier 130#DTC Neenah “Wrought Iron” stock, but brought back the “Federal Blue” ink. The innards remain bright-white Cougar 70# text paper with light gray college-ruled lines. The Double-O-Binding is still black rather than “Byline’s” silver. It looks and feels great, a nice balance between the original “Byline” and the 2019 “Front Page.”

Named one of New York Times Wirecutter “Best Notebooks of 2023.”“Like other Field Notes notebooks, this reporter pad has a distinctive, charming design that makes you feel like you’re going on an adventure, even when you’re just taking notes at your desk.”

The basic specifications and inside cover contents remain unchanged, it’s sized perfectly for your hands, easy to write in with one hand while holding it with the other. The cover protects the wire binding, so it doesn’t get caught on fabric or stuff in your backpack. It’s college-ruled for optimal page economy. The diameter of the binding and the die-cut holes that the binding passes through are optimized for maximum “flippability.” And the handy pocket in the back cover makes for a thicker, more stable hand-held writing surface, and also gives you a place to stash a shred of evidence, or a receipt for the cocktails you bought to ply a reluctant witness.
