Graph paper notebook

Graph paper notebook

This white-bordered design contains graph-paper with 3.7 mm squares. Feel free to write along the lines of a single line or two ― or just ignore the lines altogether.

The “Secret Line”

There’s something we call the “Secret Line”: a vertical line that can split each page into a header section on the left and details section on the right. We’ve printed it lightly enough that you can easily ignore it when using the page as a whole. The placement of the Secret Line is the same as that of each book’s standard counterpart.

Daily quotes

Each notebook page features a quote in Japanese, specially selected from the planner’s parent site, Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun.

Small illustration

The bottom right of each graph paper spread features a total of 85 random one-panel comics about daily life, all specially drawn for the Day-Free by Shinsuke Yoshitake. The illustrations feature everyday moments that are easy to miss, like running children and donut treats.
