I have two or three in my bag at any given time. I am also a Field Notes fan-- yes, love the videos and the sturdy utility.

    People at work know me by my notebook, it is funny-- "You've always got that square orange one...you're always writing in that yellow thing...what's with the orange notebook?!" What can I say? As a writer, hooooeeeeee, I love my paper!
    If you get tired of being teased about the orange covers, they have black covers with the orange logo.

    I am not a big fan of the orange

    I wish they made notepads in Rhodiarama colors: Turquoise, Sapphire, Iris(Nordic) , Purple, Lilac(UV), Raspberry (Azalea), Poppy(Punch) which match with my Tom Bihn bags and clothes wardrobe colors.

    Color coding is also great for notes by subject, I could have one Rodhiarama A4 notepad for each of my Large Cafe Bags or Synapse (with a tentative s), housed in a matching or Steel Pouch!

    You know that they also match most Lamy Safari! Especially the special editions!

    So exiting!

    My EDC notebook is a mini composition book available for $1 at most office supply stores or in the office supply section of larger stores. It fits in my SE along with keys, organizer wallet and checkbook.

    I use the Staples Arc notebook! I have the size kjm listed in red and it is great! I like the you can customize what you put in it. When you first load it up, you'll spend a little more, but it is great. I also like that I can easily pull the pages out. There are 3 of us in my office that use it so I convinced my boss we needed to buy the punch for it as well after somebody here (I think) recommended it.

    Midori notebooks look lush. I've never held one in my hands, which is probably good because I don't need another obsession. :-)

    My main book now is a midori travellers notebook, fountain pen friendly paper is a necessity for me.. I enjoy writing with my Namiki vanishing point Raden pen with what must be one of the best inks (Pilot Irsohizuku Tsuki-Yo).
    Anyway I digress, lol. The other books i own are all good for fountain pen or indeed any other inks.
    Joint 1st place are my Midori TN (above) and the awesome notebooks handmade by Design-Y
    Rhodia web notebooks are very good quality too. I do not like Moleskines as they don't like fountain pen ink like the others do.

    I produce records for a living (although sadly, they are not called that anymore). Each project consists of "tracking" the basic arrangement with a band, followed by several months of "overdubbing", editing, and finally, "mixing." There are extensive notes taken daily, as the project morphs, and I take them in a large ruled Moleskin, which, upon completion, I give to the artist as a momento of the project.

    I found this company which engraves a leather binder for Moleskins, either from their library of art, or any graphic you send them. Here's a picture of my elephant, who helps me remember what I need to do next.Click image for larger version

    I am a recent convert to the Leuchtturm 1917 for use as a journal. The version with the dots. Just wonderful, slightly better paper than a Moleskine, and numbered pages. For classes in which I take notes and don't need the size and weight of a hardback journal, I use whichever size of the Moleskine Volant is suitable.

    I don't go anywhere without my Field Journal Notebook, it is very handy to keep my ideas and thoughts and it is also a long term planning calendar. The size is perfect.
    I have a recycled paper scratch pad, the size of the Atoma above, in the front pocket.

    I also use an Ampad recycled, letter size, notepad placed in a Large Pouch for long notes.

    My computer reminds me what day we are and my phone what time it is and it also sounds the alarm so I move my self as well as the lovely Tom Bihn bag setup of the day and I don't run late for appointments.

    FIELD NOTES COLORS: DRY TRANSFER “________ EDITION”

    I joined the Fields Notes fanclub after the dry transfers were sold out. I crack myself up by thinking about what titles I would have selected, though. My favorite would be to just to put "FIELD NOTES" back on there, ha ha.

    The transfers sheets have little lines above and below the letters to help you get things straight and space the letters pleasingly. I'd probably also lay down a light pencil line to help keep things tidy.
