Hobonichi Techo OriginalAvec
Two-Book Set

Slim and compact 6-month book

The Avec, which means “together” in French, contains a January-June book and a July-December book. These books are ideal for filling to the brim with contents, as the slim size gives users a great head start on keeping the book at a manageable thickness. The light weight also makes it comfortable for carrying around.
*No Spring (April-start) version available.


The covers are matched with a color scheme of lime yellow and ice blue. The spine tape is a reddish-brown to give the color scheme a unique look.

Half the weight and thickness

The Avec contains 240 pages, making its carefully-balanced weight and thickness just over half of the 464-page full version.


The page design, calendars, and informational pages in the Avec are the same as the full version.

The yearly index and monthly calendar span the following dates:

[Avec Book 1]
Yearly Index: December 2018 - March 2020
Monthly Calendar: December 2018 - July 2019

[Avec Book 2]
Yearly Index: June 2019 - May 2020
Monthly Calendar: June 2019 - January 2020

Includes informational pages

Book 1 and Book 2 of the Avec both include the same extra pages in the back and only vary in the number of pages included. So if you’re tracking anything on a graph, for example, it’s easy to continue that same pattern in the next book.

*Please note there is a large difference in the number of memo pages.

Number of memo pages:
Full year (January start): 15 pages
Full year (April start): 13 pages
Avec 2-Book Set (Jan-Jun): 2 pages
Avec 2-Book Set (Jul-Dec): None

Fits standard Hobonichi Techo covers

The Avec fits neatly into the standard Hobonichi Techo covers. It also leaves plenty of room to couple it with your favorite notebook if you fit only one side of the Avec book cover into place.
