    Mother 2Magicant MapWeeks Hardcover Book

    Mother (EarthBound in North America) is a video game series created by Shigesato Itoi, and after years of successful Hobonichi Techo cover designs, the series makes its return to the lineup in 2018. This year’s Mother covers include the leather cover Mr. Saturn (Ninja, Bird-Fishing, Ladder), This is Magicant, and the Weeks book Magicant Map.

    Magicant portrays the world inside the mind of the main character Ness near the end of the game. In this cover depicting the map of Magicant, you can see Ness’s mom, his sister Tracy, and naked Ness. The year 2018 is imprinted in white.

    The back of the cover features many other characters, including Ness as a young boy, the snowman, Pokey, and his friends. The book spine has the cave-like pink pattern featured deep within Magicant. The endpaper in the book is printed with the Mother 2 logo.

    You can use this book to turn your Hobonichi Techo into your own Magicant, filling it with your own memories, sketches, and other personal musings.

    Included free with this cover is a Mr. Saturn notepad. The notepad is in the traditional Japanese vertical style, with a color Mr. Saturn on the cover and monochrome Mr. Saturn on the pages. Written in the corner is the phrase, “Write so many.”

    Included with the Hobonichi Techo Weeks is a clear, adhesive pocket you can affix to the inside of your cover, and a mini version of the Hobonichi Japan Railway Map 2018, which condenses maps of Japan’s major city railway maps into a single fold-out paper.

    Please Read Before You Buy

    In order to provide you with the most satisfaction for your product, we've compiled a list of warnings, potential issues, and tips to keep in mind for this particular product. Please be sure to read this information carefully before placing your order.

    Test fountain pens before regular use

    The Hobonichi Techo's Tomoe River paper is designed to prevent bleed-through, but some fountain pens and water-based ink pens are not compatible with this paper. When switching to a new pen, we recommend testing the pen somewhere in the book, such as the back memo pages, to see if the ink bleeds through or takes an especially long time to dry.

    Keep away from moisture and humidity

    This cover uses paper products, so please keep it away from moisture and humidity as it may result in distortion or tears.

    Not for use with Clear Cover

    The PP coated surface of this cover makes it incompatible with the PVC plastic Clear Cover. The products may become warped or stuck together, which would also make it difficult to open and close the book.

    Cover corners are slightly bumpy

    The corners of the cover contain light traces of press marks and lumps. This is an unavoidable part of the manufacturing process.

    Color may vary slightly based on viewing screen

    The color of the product may be slightly different in actuality than compared to how it appeared on a computer or smartphone screen.
