Comparing Colors: Field Notes
There are any number of reviews of Field Notes memo books so I wanted to focus on something slightly different. When I saw the Mackinaw Autumn collection I wondered how much the brown and orange were differed from the Standard Brown Memo book and the special color edition Butcher Orange book. And so here is the side-by-side comparison.
On the bottom left to right: the Mackinaw Autumn collection in Running-Board Brown, Harvest Moon Orange, and Burnt Red. On the top, left to right: Standard and Butcher Orange. There is a huge difference between the Running-Board Brown and Standard Brown, the former is a deeper, warmer brown that I have to admit I like much more than the Standard Brown color. The Harvest Moon Orange is slightly more yellow than Butcher Orange, which I think is a truer orange. I do like the Harvest Moon just a bit more than Butcher Orange, but both are strong colors. Finally there is the Burnt Red, a very pretty red that does look like the color of turned leaves and apples.
