Front Page, Reporter's Notebook
"Front Page" is a fabulous Reporterâ€™s Notebook! It succeeds the Summer 2016 "Byline" Limited Edition as a Field Notes permanent edition! The Reporterâ€™s Notebook is an iconic American
object. From The Front Page to All the Presidentâ€™s Men to Spotlight,
the sight of one being whipped out and flipped open is a sure sign that
somebody is about to write down something important. Theyâ€™re excellent for taking notes at work
or in class. Theyâ€™re wire bond and lay flat, so theyâ€™re perfect on
your desk or kitchen counter, or on that table near the door where you
always leave your keys. And of course, if youâ€™re getting the scoop from an anonymous source for your next big front page
story, "Front Page" is just the ticket. As usual, the
inside covers are jam-packed with helpful information and an inside-pocket!
Unlike a Classic Reporterâ€™s Notebooks that are a touch clumsy, these have been trimmed a bit in the width
to make it easier to write with one hand while holding it with the
other. The cover protects the wire binding, so it
doesnâ€™t get caught or snagged on fabric or with stuff in your backpack! Traditional
notebooks are Gregg-ruled which, generally too wide and too dark.
These have a lighter Collegiate ruling. The diameter of the binding
has been customized, as have the die-cut holes that the binding passes
through, for maximum â€œflippability.â€ A handy pocket has been added to
the back cover which makes for a thicker and more stable hand-held
writing surface, and also gives you a place to stash a shred of evidence
or a receipt for the cocktails you bought to calm a reluctant witness.
