New this season, Gurunpa's Kindergarten takes a print from the beloved children's book to decorate its covers. Gurunpa leads the way on the front cover for the other animals on the back. Taking from the illustrations, the butterfly stoppers feature a painted brush-stoke design while the bookmarks are made with adorable charms of a cookie and plate.

Gurunpa’s Kindergarten is a beloved children’s book from over 50 years ago, first released in 1965. The longtime favorite book was written by Minami Nishiuchi and illustrated by Seiichi Horiuchi. The story stars Gurunpa the large elephant, who works at all kinds of places, including a shoe store, piano factory, automobile factory, and more.

Seiichi Horiuchi was active as an art director in a variety of fields, including magazine design and serialized travel journals. Gurunpa’s Kindergarten was one of the masterpieces of his work, and is the artwork featured on this techo cover.

This cover will comfortably fit A6 notebooks with a spine of 0.5 inches (1.27cm) or smaller. Though it has the capacity to fit spines larger than 0.5in, the cover might have a tighter fit. Add a clear Hobonichi Cover on Cover to protect this cover from wear and tear and add extra space for storing photos, stickers, and postcards.
