Hobonichi Plain Notebook (A5) - Wish Upon a Star by Yuka Hiiragi
After many years of customer requests for a plain notebook that feels just like the Hobonichi Techo, the Hobonichi Plain Notebook made an appearance from 2019. For our third year, a Plain Notebook with a decorated cover joins the lineup.
Wish Upon a Star was designed by Yuka Hiiragi, whose wide range of work involves illustrations, writing, and isn’t confined within a specific genre. It's a chic design with a black base, with women and horses looking up to the shooting star and freesias and Christmas roses framing them drawn with a delicate touch.
This notebook has Tomoe River paper, opens completely flat, and contains graph paper divided into 4 colors.
The Tomoe River paper is the same thin, durable paper as that used in the Hobonichi Techo. This allows the 288-page book to stay at a mere 10mm thick, giving you plenty of room to fill to your heart’s content.
The 3.7 millimeter graph paper is also the same as that of the Japanese-edition Hobonichi Techo Original. The color of the ink on the page changes every 72 pages (red / blue / green / purple), making it easy to split the book into several themes or use the colors as a way to more easily find old entries.
The notebook size is the same as the A5 Cousin, which makes it compatible with any of the Cousin’s Hobonichi Techo covers. The cover is great for storing items like pens or sticky notes and provides a very convenient user experience.
(Also available in A6 size.)
You can also buy several notebooks and establish a single theme to keep across each book.
The notebook is also a great supplement to the Hobonichi Techo, or simply a slim notebook to keep by your side for filling with lots of writings or drawings.
