The Fall limited-edition seasonal release, “The Shenandoah Edition” features three green French cover stocks that match the leaf colour of three trees found at Shenandoah National Park: the Sweet Birch, the Chestnut Oak, and the Red Maple. Platinum Converting in Itasca, Ill. fused each of the green papers to a contrasting French text-weight paper that matches the tree’s fall foliage.
These extra-sturdy duplexed covers have a classic, beefy feel to them, reminiscent of early COLORS releases like “Mackinaw Autumn” and “Just Below Zero.” Beefier, actually, since we’ve upgraded our body paper to 60#T Finch Opaque “Bright White,” with a 3/16″ graph. Each features an illustration of a leaf on the back with some facts about the tree. The belly band is real birch veneer, just because it looked so darn good with all that green.
“Beautiful notebook. Beautiful little notebooks - nice covers and beautiful paper.”
