Details

The “Mile Marker” dot-graph Field Notes Memo Book set was released as a Spring 2019 Quarterly Edition. Alongside their Spring release, the “Mile Marker” Memo Books 3-Pack, celebrating America’s Dwight D. Eisenhower System of Interstate and Defense Highways, Field Notes decided to offer a companion piece: an old-school gas-station-style, Field Notes National Highway Map.

This handy 3.5” x 8” map unfolds to 36” x 24.5”. One side features a large, colorful diagram of the continental Interstate System, designed exclusively for Field Notes by Mr. Cameron Booth of Portland, Oregon , who implemented a beautiful and thoughtful data design scheme for this project.

The reverse side features 28 panels packed with information from the ultra useful to the purely entertaining. The Map includes a history of the Interstate System, an essential Citizens’ Band radio glossary, mile marker and exit numbering conventions, national traffic control sign design guidelines, a classic “License Plate Game” scorecard, and tons of other helpful and/or arcane information guaranteed to entertain, educate, and/or confuse you on your next big road trip.
