Illustrator Yumi Kitagishi created the artwork featured on this Weeks book cover.
The world in Kitagishi’s acrylic gouache paintings evoke warm, nostalgic feelings reminiscent of childhood days spent gazing at picture books.
The concept behind this Weeks book is “carrying around my own framed artwork.” A special feeling like holding a small work of art by Kitagishi in your own hands, has been created using machines from Kiryu, a town famous for weaving. The special feel and silky sheen of the texture make it different from printed designs, and the navy color gives it a mature look.
The cover depicts a cat in a colorful frame. It’s holding stuffed animals—a bear and a rabbit—as if to say “hey, look at this!”
The bottom right of the front cover is foil-printed in silver with a message that reads “Hope you have a wonderful day.”
The year is also foil-printed on the spine of the book in silver. It sparkles when the light hits it just right.
The back of the cover also includes a lovely pansy.
Because the illustration is depicted through woven fabric and not a print, each cover has the motif placed in a slightly different position. We hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind design.
Kitagishi’s illustrated designs are also featured on folder sets, Hobonichi Paper(s), and Deco Rush products. Feel free to use them together as a set.
When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
The Weeks book has space for writing in plans or journal entries, and it also has 69 pages of grid paper memo pages in the back (73 pages in the English edition Weeks). The back of the book contains informational pages, including An Interview with Myself and Seasonal Sweets to Make at Home.

About Yumi Kitagishi
Illustrator. Creates works with a rich sense of color and the warmth of hand-drawing, giving people a picture book-like view of the world. Illustrated for Kitty Cat Nursery Strolling Car (written by Hiroshi Ishizaki, published by Kodansha) and Little Stories of 366 Days (Shufunotomo).
Exterior pattern may be slightly uneven
The pattern on the cover material may become slightly uneven during the production process. This is an unavoidable aspect of the process.
Pattern alignment varies by product
The patterned fabric has not been aligned to a specific layout, so the placement of each design will vary by product. The product will not be an exact replica of the one in the product photographs.
Note: The Hobonichi Techo's Tomoe River paper is designed to prevent bleed-through, but some fountain pens and water-based ink pens are not compatible with this paper. When switching to a new pen, we recommend testing the pen somewhere in the book, such as the back memo pages, to see if the ink bleeds through or takes an especially long time to dry.
