Field Notes County Fair ILLINOIS 3-Pack


In stock


What’s your favorite state? Is it where you live? Where you want to live? The one you visit every chance you get? Each pack of Field Notes’ County Fair edition includes three memo books featuring your chosen state. All fifty great states of the union and Washington D.C are available, and there’s also a spanish-language version for Puerto Rico.

The covers are printed in the traditional award ribbon colors, blue/red/yellow, with gold text on sturdy 110#C stock with a textured linen finish. Inside, you’ll find 48 pages of 50#T Finch Opaque white paper with a light-blueish-gray graph, ready for your travel plans, cook-off recipes, or livestock feeding schedules.

On the back covers, you’ll find a bevy of meticulously-researched state facts and figures. For example, did you know that Mississippi is the birthplace of stickball? Or that Kansas has 46,345,827* acres of farmland? We could go on and on, but having such facts ready-to-go in your pocket is far more efficient than scrolling through our website.

County Fair is a great gift for travelers, visitors, amateur historians, and friends who live in states that frankly, don’t have a wide variety of state-themed merchandise available. We’re looking at you, Connecticut.
