The front of the planner book is made of strong card stock with a soft ivory hue, and features the label “HOBONICHI TECHO 2021 original” printed in gray letters if the book’s weekly calendars start on Monday and red if they start on Sunday. The April-start version includes the label 'spring'.
The 105 x 148 mm (roughly 4”x 6”) A6 size is light and portable, making it easy to carry around and pull out anytime.
The thin, light paper, called Tomoe River paper, is strong, resistant to bleeding, and allows ink to dispense smoothly across the paper — an ideal choice for a planner.
Special stitch-binding allows the planner to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.
The page corners are rounded to minimize creasing and damage to the edges when carried around or stored in a bag.
Serial numbers on the inside back cover give each planner a unique identity and make your planner your very own special book.
