Hobonichi 2024 A5 Planner Cover [Leather: Taku Satoh Basic Black]

£81.75 £109.00

We created this black leather cover with graphic designer Taku Satoh, who is in charge of the Hobonichi Techo’s design direction. TS stands for the initials of Taku Satoh. Out of all the various Hobonichi Techo covers, this has been a staple in our lineup and has been a popular choice for over ten years.

The fine texture of the matte cow leather is soft from the first time you use it and fits comfortably in your hands. The smooth feel as you hold it in your hands is another characteristic of this leather.



The leather cover exudes an elegance with a black colour that will suit any outfit. It makes it an ideal first-time leather cover and is also perfect for anyone who wants to own a standard leather cover that is simple, chic, and timeless.

Changes in 2024

The A5 planner cover is no longer sold as a set to include the planner. From 2024, you will now have the option of buying a planner to fit your cover of choice, separately. The A5 cover fits the Cousin book. Please see our range of Hobonichi planners, here.
