Field Notes這次找了芝加哥著名海報設計師 Jay Ryan合作，Jay Ryan 擁有獨特的視覺設計風格以及豐富的想像力。相關作品可以在作者的個人網站 The Bird Machine 中觀賞。
Chicago-area illustrator/ postermaker Jay Ryan is an old friend. He’s a craftsman with great visual style and more than his fair share of imagination, and you can see tons of his work at The Bird Machine. For years we’ve been looking for a way to collaborate with Jay for Field Notes.
During October, Jay set himself a goal of creating one small ink illustration each day. These drawings revealed a story about a bear and his squirrel neighbors. We followed Jay’s progress on Instagram, and found the drawings irresistible. We knew that they’d look great in a special Field Notes edition. Jay agreed. He revealed the bear’s name is Haxley, and that this story is sort of a preamble to a larger project that he’s been kicking around for years. We can’t wait to see that.
Jay 替自己設定每日一幅手繪圖稿的目標，而這些圖稿裏總會出現一隻熊和熊的鄰居——松鼠。Field Notes是在instagram發現Jay的作品，第一眼便深信他的作品在 Field Notes 上會有很好的發揮。Haxley是故事主角熊的本名，為整個故事展開序曲。
The “Haxley” edition includes two 64-page books. The first is a “Story Book,” featuring ruled pages alongside Jay’s 31 black-and-white drawings. You can expand on Haxley’s adventure, or, just maybe, recount a completely different journey, one you make yourself.
Haxley系列包含兩本各六十四頁的筆記本。第一本是Story Book，內頁以 Jay 的黑白插畫以及橫線條格式交替呈現。你可以擴展 Haxley 的探險之旅，又或者發展一個完全不同的故事。
The other book in the 2-Pack is a “Sketch Book” with blank pages. We trust you can find a way to fill that one up.
第二本是 Sketch Book。內頁是空白頁，讓使用者自由運用。
Both books feature Neenah Royal Sundance Felt “Warm White” covers with four spot colors and a fifth-glow-in-the-dark ink, illuminating the flashlight beams. They’re PUR-boundwith Domtar Cougar smooth 70# “Natural” text paper inside.
兩本筆記本的封面都是以 Neenah Royal Sundance Felt “Warm White” 所製成，其中包含四種色彩與螢光色印刷。螢光色處理則是為了凸顯故事中 Haxley 使用的手電筒照光。內頁的紙質則是 Domtar Cougar smooth 70# “Natural”。
