Hobonichi Techo Keiko Shibata: Fluffy floating kittens Weeks [JPN Spring Start 2024]

Article number: Keiko Shibata: Fluffy floating kittens Weeks [JPN Spring Start 2024]
Availability: In stock

The Hobonichi Techo Weeks size planner with one page per week. This is the April-start version with pages spanning from April 2024 up to March 2025.

Keiko Shibata’s unique artwork has now become a Hobonichi Techo Weeks cover. “Fluffy floating kittens” is one of the works drawn in 2022 on the theme of “wind.”

The wind blowing in the field was so strong that the kittens accidentally started floating. The indescribably cute expressions on their faces are so charming. The rough cloth used on the cover is designed to resemble a canvas. The warm touch of the oil pastel drawings is vividly expressed.

The front cover and book spine are foil-printed with the year 2024 in black, for a nice and simple look.

The back cover features the image of Shibata’s signature.

The cover has been constructed as a light hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends.

From the 2024 April-start version for the Weeks, the book uses thin and light yet durable Tomoe River S paper. The paper has supported the Hobonichi Techo for over 20 years with its special characteristics, but it’ll be undergoing an overhaul starting with the 2024 edition techos. The paper is more resistant to bleed through, lighter despite being the same thickness, and has a smoother surface by adjusting the fibers of the paper.

The Weeks book has space for writing in plans or journal entries, and it also has 69 pages of grid paper memo pages in the back (73 pages in the English edition Weeks and the April-start version). The back of the book contains informational pages, including An Interview with Myself and Seasonal Sweets to Make at Home.
