Hobonichi Techo Weeks - Samiro Yunoki: Chair and Bucket - 2021 January Start
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. The spine reads 2021, and the bottom left of the back cover is embossed with the name Hobonichi. When asked why he chose a chair and bucket, Yunoki replied, “It’s something that you see on a daily basis. There’s something admirable about it.” The art illustrates Yunoki’s warm gaze at these things that are not special or fancy, but merely exist alongside us.
When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
