Hobonichi Techo Weeks - Makoto Wada: Embrace the Constellations - 2021 January Start

This Weeks book has a gentle charm to it, thanks to the illustration by famous Japanese graphic designer and illustrator Makoto Wada.

The title of the piece is Embrace the Constellations. Wada has been illustrating the covers of literary magazine Shukan Bunshun for over 40 years, starting in 1977. This piece was featured on the cover of the November 7, 2002 edition.

Wada created these constellation illustrations based on a 400-year-old star chart. The map's order is flipped horizontally from modern versions, but Wada had an explanation for this: "This is apparently the view from the eyes of God, who sits even higher than the stars and watches them below. It's fascinating seeing the grand scale from which folks from a long time ago thought about these things.”

This piece is printed on the Weeks book’s slightly textured, canvas-like cover material. Between the wide array of colors and the warm feel of the brush, this book is sure to raise the spirits of its user.

The year 2021 is foil-pressed in matte gold and has an elegant yet casual shine to it. The corner of the back cover includes Makoto Wada’s name and a Hobonichi logo.

When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
