Doane Paper sent me a few of these awesome little notepads. These are a great alternative to Field Notes not only because of the price point and the excellent illustration by Jon Contino, but because it mixes both standard line for writing with the grid lines for designing or drawing. Another unique item that was added was this Horween Leather Utility Notepad Cover, which can also be purchased through the store. The notepads tend to wear down fast going in and out of your pocket but this case keep the notepad crisp. The case was handmade here in america and made exclusively for Doane Paper.
