Hobonichi A5 HON 2024, Paper Series: Black Gingham
The Paper Series uses unique paper by specialized paper trading company Takeo.
This book may seem like an ordinary black techo, but when you look closely, you will find the entire surface covered with a plaid pattern. The book is made of Takeo’s “Gingham GA,” a paper embossed with plaids reminiscent of gingham. You can see the gingham pattern from different angles of light. Although it’s embossed, it feels smooth to the touch.
Please note that the cover of this HON book is thinner and softer than the other HON books since it is made by cutting off the sides of the cover instead of wrapping the cover material around the cardboard. It does not have a bookmark.
The low-key pattern is perfect for users looking for a simple yet unique design. This Weeks book will blend in at work with a charm that only you would notice.
The contents are the same as the Hobonichi Techo Cousin book. The HON A5 size includes weekly pages which track a week in each two-page spread for easy planning and contain a handy time schedule.
The bookbinding on the HON has thread-stitch binding similar to the Hobonichi Techo Cousin, so it opens 180 degrees onto the table. It stays flat even if you don’t hold it down.
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 almost the same thickness, and has a crisper surface by adjusting the fibers of the paper.
As a special exclusive only for the HON, this techo comes with a pencil board. The board is A5 size and clear, with 5mm grid lines printed across it.
