Nichi is a Hobonichi Techo Original. A what?? Yes, Nichi is a Hobo and I'm planning to use him as an Art Journal.
What is a Hobonichi?
Is is a popular Japanese brand notebook/daily planner manufactured by Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun (Hobonichi). The planner's pages feature a 4mm lined grid to maximize customization and is printed on Tomoe River (Tomoegawa) paper, a very thin and high quality paper. It is resistant to bleeding and feathering of inks and paints, especially fountain pen inks and watercolors, though alcohol-based pens will bleed through. The book is structured with a yearly overview section, monthly pages, various informational pages in the back, and most importantly, one full page dedicated to each day. Daily pages display the current moon phase, the day/week of the year, and short quotations from a variety of sources. The planner may be used in an optional cover with several useful features like card pockets, bookmarks, and a pen holder which doubles as a clasp. Covers are offered in a variety of materials and are sold in a different set of designs every year. The planner and covers are available in two sizes, the A6 'Original', and the larger A5 'Cousin'.
I came across this planner when I was checking out inserts for my Chocodori. I saw an insert that says "Hobonichi style". I started googling and boom! I fell in love with the hobo. So I ordered a Hobonichi Techo Original 2015 Spring Edition from their site and ordered a Rose Poudre cover from Davaoarts in Instagram.
It's still not too late to buy one. You may check out our Instagram account to buy one.
