    If you want paper that's one color on one side and another color on the reverse, the simplest thing to do is to start with white paper and print a different ink on each side. We’ve done that, it's simple, it works well. But we're Field Notes; if there's a more difficult, expensive, and awesome way to achieve the same result, we will find it. In this case, it's called duplexing. Using brute force and adhesives, you take two different colored papers and fuse them together so that they become one. We've used duplex paper before (in our "American Tradesman" and "Raven's Wing" editions) but this time we had specific paper and colors in mind, and an off-the-shelf solution wouldn't work. So for the very first time, we made our own.

    Our Fall limited-edition seasonal release, "The Shenandoah Edition" features three green French cover stocks that match the leaf color of three trees found at Shenandoah National Park: the Sweet Birch, the Chestnut Oak, and the Red Maple. Our new friends at 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.
