This set includes both a cover and the Techo A6 Planner for 2018 (January start). Hydrangea pairs a sky blue exterior with a shell pink interior for a color scheme that’s both charming and soothing. The hydrangea is a flower often associated with “family” in Japan, making this cover perfect for keeping a child’s growth journal or a family exchange notebook.
High-quality polyester construction gives this cover its sturdy feel and subtle shine — it’s durable enough to last a long time, but light enough to carry with you everywhere.
The pen holders act as a hinge that keeps the cover safely shut when storing a pen in both of the holders. The cover contains two bookmarks, one with a rectangle charm and one with a triangle charm, so you can keep your place in two parts of the book, such as the monthly calendar and the daily calendar.
The Hobonichi Techo Planner is the English version of the Japanese Hobonichi Techo Original and was specially created in collaboration with Arts&Science owner Sonya Park.
The book’s compact A6 size and page-per-day format provide a place to generously fill an entire year’s worth of spur-of-the-moment thoughts while still staying comfortably portable. From the heartfelt to the humorous, the Hobonichi Techo includes quotes specially chosen from it's parent site, the Japanese web magazine Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun. Each two page spread contains a single quote.
The Techo planner is printed on lightweight fountain pen friendly Tomoe River Paper. The graph paper in the English version is slightly enlarged to 4 mm. Timelines are simplified to a single 12 to denote noon so users can completely customize it to their own schedule (or ignore it completely), and each day is also labeled with the number of the consecutive week that year, from 1 to 52. Features such as a list of international holidays and international size charts cater to the worldwide community that comes together through this book. In addition, the 2018 edition includes information pages in the back of the book about Japanese history, annual events, and folk tales.
