This cover design is an homage to Shigesato Itoi's 1994 Super Nintendo game, MOTHER 2 (EarthBound in North America).
This Weeks book is called Traveling Companions. Ness, Paula, Jeff, and Poo travel together across the front cover, with Mr. Saturn on the back.
The photographs on the cover were made with the precious clay figurines that were made for the player’s guide when MOTHER 2 was released in 1994. You’ll never get tired of studying all the tiny details in these characters.
The background features a purple checkered design reminiscent of the pattern used across the game, including the characters’ HP and PP displays during battle.
The year 2021 is casually printed in white on the bottom right of the front cover.
The corner of the back cover includes the logos for MOTHER and Hobonichi.
Whenever you take out your techo, seeing these four friends is sure to lift your spirits. Why not join them on a fun adventure in 2021?
This Weeks book includes bonus stickers you can use to mark your techo pages. They’re included on two sheets so you can keep one in perfect shape. Feel free to use these stickers on special days and on days that are nothing special!
When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
