Hobonichi Weeks, Samiro Yunoki: Chair and Bucket, 2021


There’s a chair, and there’s a bucket. The cover of this Weeks book perfectly captures the unassuming, day-in-the-life worldview of the Hobonichi Techo. The lovely artwork is by 97-year-old dye artist Samiro Yunoki, who even today is still actively creating art.

The outlines are painted over a simple white background with a bamboo brush. Inspired by Dutch delft tiles, the art on this techo is completed by the blue dotted on all four corners.

The material on the surface of the cover is slightly textured to the touch.
