17TH QUARTERLY EDITION

VIRTUALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE

FNC-17 marked the start of our fifth year of Quarterly Editions. In that time, we had explored a wide variety of papers, colors, and printing techniques, but with this new Expedition edition, for the first time, we actually expanded the type of paper used in our notebooks.

Aesthetically, you’ll find a design with plenty to like: a hi-visibility “Antarctic Survey Orange” front cover and “Polar Night Black” back cover, with a subtle varnish effect featuring a topographic map of Antarctica. The body pages feature our popular dot-graph paper printed in light gray.

But the real innovation here is the paper. It’s maybe not even fair to call it paper. The whole book is printed on Yupo Synthetic paper, an amazing tearproof and waterproof paper extruded from polypropylene pellets in Chesapeake, Virginia. We could go on and on about our new notebooks’ durability and incredible properties (especially in concert with our Space Pen), and we will, in this series of 12 (reasonably) scientific tests
