    Interesting that the mystery color won, in the end. Just goes to show the vote of confidence that forumites have in Tom's judgment. "Go ahead, surprise us..."

    Hey, you're a mod. By definition that was an intelligent post. Besides, it succinctly conveyed the response to the disappearance of that color in one, heartfelt word.

    Wow, I had no idea Tom's R&D was so... extravagant! :P

    I haven't seen Conifer before, but a few year's ago Pine was a color option for the Cafe bags. If you want to see what this looked like, check this forum post and scroll down the page for the comments and pictures. Pine/Wasabi was a really nice color combination, but it didn't last very long. Just a few months later we had this intelligent post from one of the mods. There have been a few comments in the forum about bringing back a similar color.

    There's a new (I think) color listed for the Cafe Bags: Conifer. Could that be the "Secret New Color"? If it's green, it sounds wonderful.

    From the mystery photo on the blog, it looks like we're getting a gorgeous option in the red color family. That's exciting!

    Field Journal Notebook Colours

    I do enjoy Black as a rule for notebooks but I put in a vote for Cocoa and Indigo as well. I have seen the Indigo in person and that is a very brilliant shade of blue. If the cocoa comes out in a deep brown shade I'm on board since deep brown shades are my favourite next to black.

    If I've missed it pardon me but if anyone happens to know what size(s) will the notebook be available in? I'm pretty much a Moleskine devotee but TB could have me changing my mind if the notebook stays flat when I'm writing. I blame my lefthandedness

    Any hints to the top secret colour? I like emerald so I say give me a co-pilot in emerald and I'll buy it then. No its not blackmail...(whistles to herself smiling as she goes down the road.) Hey, Moleskine listened to me about putting the monthly view in for the 2011 Daily Organiser I received this past week so I can dream right? LOL...

    I voted for Cocoa & Plum. I love Linen, have a Café bag in it, but think it would get dirty very quickly. Indigo would be my 3rd choice. I figure Black & Steel would be shoo-ins, but I want something more fun. I will probably get two FJNs, certainly if they are offered in Cocoa & Plum!

    The reason I didn't vote for Linen has to do with my experience with my medium cafe bag. I've had to wash it more frequently than any other bag I own because it keeps getting dirty. I'll admit I use it a lot and I'm not careful about where I set it down, but none of my other bags have needed more than a bit of spot cleaning.

    Somehow, I didn't think that would be a desired quality in a field journal.

    Every color is a classic color, easy to coordinate or contrast with the cool colors of winter, spring and summer or the warm colors of fall.

    Some people have a predominant cool color wardrobe, some have a warm color wardrobe and others mix and match.

    A Cocoa FJN would be just wonderful with the Cocoa or Cork Small Swift.

    I know how gorgeous Plum is and how well it goes with every color. (don't ask how I know, I am taking the 5th on the number of Plum TB objets I have)

    Indigo looks spectacular. Many bags in that color are calling my name.

    Black and Steel are staple neutral for the workplace.

    Linen and Olive are great warm color neutrals.


    I find that this array of colors is bound to please anybody in the market for the FJN.

    Some people might also consider getting a couple of FJN in different colors.

    It is conceivable that one might use a FJN for work and another for family organization, craft projects lists or writing projects outlines.
    Or a personal journal be it for travel, wedding, pregnancy, house purchase/renovation, life journey with a pet...

    Those are the ideas that came to mind from the minute I heard of the concept of the FJN to now.


    I and many others in the forum. own Pouches in many colors, the Large ones are lifesavers when life throws an event that demands strict organization.

    Just like Pouches, the FJN promises to help with everyday and big projects organization and that is always good.
