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.
The Shirt Fabric series uses the same smooth, soft material as button-up shirts.
Painted polka dots from the watercolor artist Naomi Ito distinguish the Pocho cover. Uneven gold dots spread across a brilliant blue-dyed fabric—in Japanese the name “Pocho” illustrates the way each was individually “plopped” onto the background. There’s something calming about the pattern of the dots in this timeless design.
The cover has been constructed as a light hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends.
When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
