Michio HoshinoHarp Seal PupA6 Size (fits Planner and Original)

    This cover is customers’ favorite from the Hobonichi Techo 2018 edition.



    This cover showcases a piece by nature photographer Michio Hoshino (1952 - 1996), famous for his photographs of wildlife and everyday life in Alaska. The cute pup may be a precious baby, but you can feel the power behind the small body to survive in the great, harsh wilderness.



    We’ve painstakingly poured our efforts into the details of the print when creating the covers, paying careful attention to the sparkle of his eyes and the texture of his fluff and the snow.

    The interior and pen holders are made of white synthetic leather to evoke the image of a vast, snowy tundra. Michio Hoshino’s signature is also printed on the interior pocket.



    Because this cover uses an all-over print, there is no exterior pocket on the back of the cover.



    *A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a Japanese animal rescue shelter Rencontrer Mignon.

    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.

    Actual specifications may vary from listing

    Each item is individually assembled and sewn by hand by a factory worker. Best efforts are made to ensure consistent sizes and specifications, but there may be slight differences.

    Color and print may vary slightly

    This material is first printed or dyed and then later sewn onto the cover. While colors are designed to be consistent, there may be uneven coloring or slight shade variances between covers. This may also happen across a single cover, such as a pocket compared to the rest of the cover. In addition, on rare occasions, there may be small black or white dots visible on the print. This is an unavoidable aspect of the manufacturing process.

    Pen holders are rigid at first

    The pen holders are rigid at first, making it difficult to insert pens. You can speed up the breaking-in process by rolling the pen holders in your hand.

    Pen holder fits pens up to 13.5 mm wide

    The pen holder is designed to perfectly fit the 12.2 mm (0.48”) diameter Jetstream pen offered as a free bonus gift with select Japanese-version Hobonichi Web Shop products. Pens with certain shapes and materials may be difficult to pull through the holder. The holder can fit pens up to 13.5 mm (0.53”) in diameter.

    Not for use with Cover on Cover

    This cover uses thicker materials than usual, so it may not fit. Forcing it into a Cover on Cover may damage the products.

    Avoid storing in hot and humid places

    Please avoid storing your product in hot, humid places or placing it atop other objects for long periods of time as this may result in lower quality and color stains.
