Buy A5 Cousin (cover & book)

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 bonus pages in the Avec are the same as the full version.

Includes bonus 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.
