Hobonichi Techo Original Avec Books (January Start)

A6 Size / 6-Month x 2 Book Set / Monday-Start Week

    We first introduced the Avec in response to customers who struggled with bulging books after collecting a year’s worth of pasted material in the daily pages. The Avec splits the year into books of six months each. Book 1 (January–June) is a bright lime yellow and Book 2 (July–December) is a cool ice blue.

    Because it's split into two books, it’s lightweight which makes it easy to carry around, and it also won’t get bulky even if you paste many things into your techo.

    The Avec version splits the A6 Hobonichi Techo Original, design and all, into books of six months each with only slight variances in calendar spans and the number of extra pages in the back. This allows you to fill the pages to your heart’s content with scheduling, diaries, little notes, tickets, photographs, doodles, and anything that strikes your fancy.

    (See the Exploring Each Type page for more details.)

    The Hobonichi Techo Original Avec Books has special stitch-binding that allows the book to lay completely flat without having to hold it down.

    From the 2023 edition, we changed the packaging from plastic to paper. You can take a peek at the techo book from the window.
