Hobonichi Techo A5 Cover - Makoto Wada Time-Traveling Bird
*This is for the cover only. Hobonichi planner notebook must be purchased separately.
This beautiful cover features an illustration by famous Japanese graphic designer and illustrator Makoto Wada.
Wada has illustrated the covers of the literary magazine Shukan Bunshun for over 40 years. The Time-Traveling Bird techo cover uses the art from that very first issue, originally published on May 12, 1977. In it, a little bird holds an airmail letter beneath a starry night sky. The image was Wada’s way of saying, “This magazine cover is a message to readers.”
This cover actually includes additional art as well. The pockets of the cover interior show the little green bird flapping his wings as he carries the letter.
The pen holders act as a hinge, keeping the cover locked closed while you store a pen inside. The cover contains two bookmarks, one with a rectangle charm and one with a triangle charm, so you can keep your place in two parts of the book, such as the monthly calendar and the daily page.
