Nicknamed Tohaku, the Tokyo National Museum collects, preserves, researches, exhibits, and educates the public about cultural artifacts from across Asia, with a focus on Japan. Currently there are about 120,000 objects in its collection. This year’s collaboration includes a cute and cheerful Weeks book featuring artwork by Edo-era lacquer painter Shibata Zenshin. The work spans the front and back covers, illustrating different confectioneries in bright colors and accented with black line-work. Unlike the standard weeks, this version has the gold embossed 2023 in the lower center of the book, and the Tokyo National Museum logo on the back corner.
The cover has been constructed as a light hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends. The cover has been constructed as a light, hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends. This version begins in April 2023, just in time for the beginning of the Japanese school year.
This weekly-edition Hobonichi Techo is a compact book that’s easy to carry everywhere. The book is slim and roughly the size of a long wallet, making it easy to fit into a bag or suit pocket. The main layout of the book consists of a weekly calendar on the left page and blank graph paper on the right page. Each weekly spread also contains the characteristic Hobonichi quote in Japanese on the bottom of the page. Although slim at first glance, the book holds 71 graph-ruled memo pages for note-taking at the end of the book. The Weeks is available with a variety of different cover designs on the book itself and does not require an additional cover purchased separately.
When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
