Hobonichi Techo CousinAvec
Two-Book Set

Compact 6-month book avoids bulk

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 288 pages, making its carefully-balanced weight and thickness just over half of the 544-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: January - December 2021
Monthly Calendar: December 2020 - July 2021
Weekly Page: December 28, 2020 - July 4, 2021

[Avec Book 2]
Yearly Index: July 2021 - June 2022
Monthly Calendar: June 2021 - January 2022
Weekly Page: June 28, 2021 - January 2, 2022

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.

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.
