Description After many years of customer requests for a plain notebook that feels just like the Hobonichi Techo, we’re happy to introduce this brand new item, called the Hobonichi Plain Notebook. This A5 notebook has Tomoe River paper, opens completely flat, and contains graph paper divided into 4 colors. The Tomoe River paper thin and durable paper, which allows the 288-page book to stay at a mere 10mm thick, giving you plenty of room to fill to your heart’s content. The 3.7mm graph paper is also the same graph size as that of the Japanese-edition Hobonichi Techo Original. The color of the ink on the page changes every 72 pages (red/blue/green/purple), making it easy to split the book into several themes or use the colors as a way to more easily find old entries. The notebook size is the same as the A5 Cousin, which makes it compatible with any of the Cousin’s Hobonichi covers. Consider adding a cover, which is great for storing items like pens or sticky notes, and provides a very convenient user experience. The notebook is also a great supplement to the Hobonichi Techo, or simply a slim notebook to keep by your side for filling with lots of writings or drawings. ** Please note that the Hobonichi Plain Notebooks use the older version of Tomoe River paper. We offer Free Shipping on all orders over $59 for US customers, and for orders over $250 for our Canadian customers.
