FNC-17 marks the start of our fifth year of our Quarterly Editions. In that time, weâ€™ve explored a wide variety of papers, colors, and printing techniques, but with this new Expedition edition, for the first time, weâ€™ve actually expanded the type of paper used in our notebooks.,Aesthetically, youâ€™ll find an all-new design with plenty to like: a hi-visibility â€œAntarctic Survey Orangeâ€ front cover and â€œPolar Night Blackâ€ 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. Itâ€™s maybe not even fair to call it paper. The whole book is printed on Yupo Synthetic paper, an amazing water- and tear-proof paper extruded from polypropylene pellets in Chesapeake, Virginia.
