Hobonichi Techo 2022 Planner A6 Josef Čapek: Doggie and Pussycat set
Hobonich Techo Planner 2022 set with cover "Josef Čapek: Doggie and Pussycat" (english)
The extremely thin Tomoe River paper with 52gsm enables a 448-page daily calendar with a handy thickness of only 14mm. The robust thread binding allows the calendar to be opened flat so that double-sided writing is not an issue. Despite the thin material, the Tomoe River paper is characterized by high opacity, which greatly minimizes the shining through on the back page. The paper is not just suitable for pencil and ballpoint pens, but also amazingly ink-compatible. The overall high quality ensures that the daily calendar can be archived for decades to come even after a year of continuous use and can therefore be browsed again and again.
With different monthly overviews, the calendar offers one page per day with sufficient space for appointments and notes. Please note that the planner is printed in English and the marked holidays apply only to Japan.
The cover made of high-quality polyester creates a robust feeling and reflects in a light glow. The two pen loops also serve as a lock to prevent accidental opening. The cover features also two bookmarks, one with a triangular and one with a square tag in the cover material, in order to differentiate the current position in the daily calendar and monthly calendar. In addition, the inside of the cover has several compartments and slots for cards and notes.
Information from the manufacturer:
Doggie and Pussycat are really enjoying themselves on this thick cotton cover. The design is based on the classic Czech children’s book All About Doggie and Pussycat by painter and author Josef Čapek. The book cover is that of the edition originally published in the Czech Republic, so it features Doggie and Pussycat holding hands and the Czech book title and author name above and below them. The design is silkscreen printed onto the cover, so the printed area is sleek when you run your hands across it, and it has a vague three-dimensional effect. The inner pocket is printed with an image of Doggie and Pussycat at home, getting ready to clean the floor. The butterfly stopper pen holders are a bright yellow and blue to match the colors of Doggie and Pussycat. The cover’s red spine lists the name of the book, just like the original children’s book, and it has matching red bookmarks. There’s something delightful about feeling like you’re carrying around a Czech children’s book. There’s a hidden illustration inside the cover’s inner pocket. This is from the design on the endpaper for the original Czech edition book. Doggie and Pussycat want to live like humans, so they do human things like wash the floor, bake a cake, and write letters. They make lots of mistakes, but they’re very determined and funny, so you’ll be laughing at their antics. With this cover, you can enjoy the year ahead of you just like Doggie and Pussycat, who don’t fit into a mold and come up with their own unconventional ideas with their free-thinking.
