    Hobonichi Techo Cousin Avec Book (July-December)A5 Size (Monday-Start Week, Single 6-Month Book)

    The Cousin Avec, a set of two compact 6-month books, is now available for purchase separately as the July-December book.

    The Avec is designed to allow users to collect items on its pages without causing unwieldy bulk. It splits the same book, design and all, into a 2-book set at six months each, with only slight variances in calendar spans and the number of extra pages in the back. This allows users to fill the pages to their hearts' content.

    Due to the many requests for the Cousin Avec to include the weekly calendar featured in the full-year Cousin, we have added the weekly calendar to the 2017 edition.mPlease see here for detailed information about the Avec.

    The ice blue book cover is sturdy, making it perfect for use as-is without storing in a cover. And because it's light weight, it's perfect for carrying around with you.

    When you purchase the Cousin Avec July-December Book in the online Hobonichi Store, you'll receive a roll of “Hobonichi Techo Covers” washi tape with every book. The tape is available in limited supply, so this offer is only available while supplies last.

    In addition, when you purchase the planner in the online Hobonichi Store, the book comes with two free Hobonichi Store exclusives: a ballpoint pen and a mini butter toast plate.

    Test fountain pens before regular use

    The Hobonichi Techo's Tomoe River paper is designed to prevent bleed-through, but some fountain pens and water-based ink pens are not compatible with this paper. When switching to a new pen, we recommend testing the pen somewhere in the book, such as the back memo pages, to see if the ink bleeds through or takes an especially long time to dry.

    Correction and Apology for Typographical Error in Solar Terms section

    One of the Japanese characters in the Solar Terms explanation is incorrect, as listed below.

    白露 (White Dew)
    Incorrect: 昔の人は、草木に降りた霜が (Long ago, people saw the frost on the plants...)
    Correct: 昔の人は、草木に降りた露が (Long ago, people saw the dew on the plants...)

    We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
