Hobonichi Techo PlannerCover and
Basic Features

Book cover

In addition to the Arts&Science logo, the Japanese characters for “techo” (which means “planner”) are stamped in gold on the chic, textured cover. The Hobonichi logo and the year appear on the spine for easy reference when storing the planner in a bookshelf.

Convenient, portable A6 size

The 105 x 148 mm (roughly 4”x 6”) A6 size is light and portable, making it easy to carry around and pull out anytime. The Planner book is the same size as the Original book, so the books can use the same covers.

Perfect planner 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.

180-degree lay-flat binding

Special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.

Rounded corners

The page corners are rounded to minimize creasing and damage to the edges when carried around or stored in a bag.

Serial number

Serial numbers on the inside back cover give each planner a unique identity and make your planner your very own special book.
