PRE-ORDER* Hobonichi 5-Year Techo A5 [2023-2027]

£79.99

What is the 5 Year Techo?

This book has pages dated across a 5-year span. It has A5 size pages. Each page contains the same 3.7 mm graph paper as the A6 Hobonichi Techo Original. The paper is a subtle cream colour. On each spread, the left page has the date and day of the week for all 5 years, and the right has blank pages. The start of the book contains a yearly calendar across the 5-year span. This year, the Hobonichi 5-Year Techo will be delivered in a pastel mint paper box. The box will contain a user manual and a test sheet of paper for you to get a feel for the paper and test pen or ink compatibility. 

The textured cover is a calming shade of brown with the years foil-pressed in gold, and the book contains a dark brown bookmark for a complete look that works well without adding an additional cover.

Specifics of the 5 Year Techo

  1. Layout
    Each page contains the same, easy-to-use 3.7 mm graph paper as the A6 Hobonichi Techo Original, making it perfect for writing or drawing. The paper is a subtle cream color that’s easy on the eyes, and the printing is charcoal gray to allow handwriting to stand out from the page. On each spread, the left page has the date and day of the week for all 5 years, with days of the week written in Japanese. Because each page contains a total of 5 days, a single day’s entry is compact enough to either fill with writing or write a single sentence and feel satisfied with the entry. It’s a perfect setup for those who are worried about being able to continue using a book for 5 years (holidays are not listed in the book).

  2. Blank Pages
    The right page is a blank page for anything you’d like — continuing entries you couldn’t fit on the left, jotting notes you’d like to leave for the future, pasting items, and more. 

  3. Stitching
    The book has the same thread-stitch binding as a dictionary, allowing it to lay flat open for comfortable writing. The Tomoe River paper provides an especially smooth writing experience, with thin, light paper that allows the book to have 752 pages while staying compact.

  4. Size
    Measuring approximately 15.6cm wide x 21.4cm high, the 5-Year Techo still manages to remain relatively slim for its 752 pages at just 2.5cm thick.
