Out of the Hobonichi original accessories, the Hobonichi Pencil Board is one of the most popular items. Keeping it underneath the page you’re writing on allows the reinforcement to provide an enjoyable writing experience. They fit perfectly to the size of the techo book, and will prevent your pen from sliding on the page, and not leave indentations on the opposite page, making for a comfortable writing experience.

This design collaborates with picture book author and illustrator Keiko Shibata’s artwork on the theme of “wind.”

The A6 size “Upwind alpacas” design depicts the wind so strong that the alpacas’ long necks tilt. Their facial expressions are charming as they withstand the wind to keep themselves from being swept away. The back of the pencil board is white.

The A5 size “Swaying tulips” design illustrates mice in a tulip field playing in the wind; the wind has blown away one of them! The back of the pencil board is green.

The Weeks size “Wind gust during a Stay command” design depicts a strong wind ruffling the ears and whiskers of a beagle dog as it is trying to sit still as being told to “Stay.” It is touching to see how patiently it waits, even in such a situation. The back of the pencil board is orange.

One side is labeled by millimeter to act as a metric ruler, and a “Today” tab on the corner marks the current page if you’d like to use it as a bookmark as well.

We recommend matching them with a techo cover or Weeks featuring Shibata’s artwork. Try the Hobonichi Pencil Board for yourself and you’ll see how great it is to use.
