English version of the Hobonichi Techo
The Hobonichi Techo Planner is our English-version book. Under the direction of Sonya Park, owner of the select shop and brand Arts&Science, we’ve fine-tuned the planner, creating a simple, refined design that’s easy for anyone in the world to use.
(*Not available in April-start)
The planner features a format with a page devoted to each day. There’s lots of open space to plan the day ahead and enjoy recording your memories and activities. Think of the pages as containers for random ideas, with a clear record of the date. Paste magazine clippings, ticket stubs and photos to make the planner something completely unique – your imagination is the only limit.
180-degree lay-flat binding
Special stitch binding allows the planner to lay completely flat. When it’s always open on your desk, you can simply jot down thoughts and ideas as they occur to you.
Tomoe River paper
The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong, resistant to bleeding, and allows ink to dispense smoothly across the paper — an ideal choice for a planner. It’s the reason why the 450-page Hobonichi Techo is so compact.
From the heartfelt to the humorous to the whimsical, each spread of the planner features a quote specially selected from the planner’s parent site, Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun, and translated into English. Quotes are from a wide variety of people, including Arts&Science owner Sonya Park.
41 covers to choose from
The 2018 edition line-up includes 41 A6-size covers that fit the Planner and the Original books. The covers include lots of useful features, such as pockets in a variety of sizes, and pen holders that also act as a latch to keep your planner shut.
*A selection of covers from the 2017 design is also available.
