The Hobonichi Techo Planner is the English version of the Japanese Hobonichi Techo Original and was specially created in collaboration with Arts&Science owner Sonya Park. The book’s compact A6 size and page-per-day format provide a place to generously fill an entire year’s worth of spur-of-the-moment thoughts while still staying comfortably portable. From the heartfelt to the humorous, the Hobonichi Techo includes quotes specially chosen from its parent site, the Japanese web magazine Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun. Each two page spread contains a single quote. The graph paper in the English version is slightly enlarged to 4 mm to allow users to write comfortably in any language. Timelines are simplified to a single 12 to denote noon so users can completely customize it to their own schedule (or ignore it completely), and each day is also labeled with the number of the consecutive week that year, from 1 to 52. Features such as a list of international holidays and international size charts cater to the worldwide community that comes together through this book. In addition, the 2019 edition includes informational pages in the back of the book about historical Japanese household items, an ancient system called the Earthly Branches, and an introduction to traditional sweets from around the world. The chic black cover features a subtle engraving of the Japanese characters for “techo” along with the Arts&Science logo.
