Hobonichi Techo 2018 Pre-Release Announcements

Good-Bye PenguinNaptime


Good-Bye Penguin, a 1976 children’s book written by Shigesato Itoi and illustrated by Teruhiko Yumura, is featured this year on a Hobonichi Techo cover. We designed the cover, making sure to bring out the full charm of the picture book.
A stark contrast of the white exterior and the black interior is sure to get your attention. On the front, the penguin is laying down with his head on his hand and taking a nap. On the back, the penguin is parachuting out of an airplane. The cover has been created with a glossy surface to most clearly depict the illustration. We’d love for this book to accompany you on your adventures.
