Hobonichi Weeks, Bow & Tie: Dandelion Pappus, 2022
The Bow & Tie series is covered with the same textured, shiny fabric used in neckties. The gloss and soft touch of the material makes this series stand out from other Weeks books.
Dandelion Pappus is designed after the familiar puffs that float across the spring sky. The fluffy texture is created in detail through the embroidery of the necktie material.
Just as a dandelion takes flight from its firmly planted roots and lightheartedly sets off on a journey to gracefully follow the wind, this techo is great for turning over a new leaf. The dandelion-filled cover is dotted with puffs—called pappus—and the occasional bright yellow flower.
The cover has been constructed as a light, hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends.
