Description[edit | edit source]

Thanks to the natural texture of the wood, no two Shelterwood memo books are the same but all share their origin in the same few hand-picked cherry trees from Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. The wood covers are sustainably produced, with just a few 60" logs converted into 5000 feet of “Sheer Veneer,” with very little waste (the waste is recycled into wood pellets to heat the factory!).'

The covers are left uncoated with text printed in a double-hit of “Ghostflower White” which remains slightly opaque, the wood texture showing through like a faded whitewashed fence. Inside covers are mossy green text on kraft paper. The guts of the books are Finch Fine “Soft White” 70# text stock, the same beefy stock you loved in our America the Beautiful Edition. They’re ruled in “Maidenhair Green,” and bound together with three sturdy gold staples.[1]

The duplexing technique of applying thin wood sheets onto Kraft was carried into the stock product "Cherry Graph" (FN-23). The cover ink was changed from "Ghostflower White" to a black ink to visually distinguish from the limited edition variant.
