Hokusai –
Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji

“This collaboration with the Tokyo National Museum comes on the 150th year of the founding of the museum. Katsushika Hokusai’s Kajikazawa in Kai Province from his Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series is featured on an A6 and A5 techo cover so you can fully enjoy its beautiful colors and composition in the way it depicts the power of nature.”

In 1830, when Hokusai turned 70 years old, he began work on the Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, including the famous The Great Wave off Kanagawa. The series depicts Mt. Fuji from a number of vantage points.

This print depicts Fuji River, which is located in Kajikazawa and known for its turbulent waters. In this print, a fisherman and his son appear to be pulling in fishing lines, battling against waves that crash against the rocks. Mt. Fuji is just visible behind a shroud of fog, outlined in shades of indigo. The techo cover’s glossy polyester material was chosen to best portray the print’s depiction of waves and splashing.
The back of the cover depicts Hokusai’s seal, which he used to sign his work, as well as his handwritten title of the piece.

This collaboration features planner covers in the Original A6 size and the A5 Cousin, as well as accessories.

The folders come in A6 or A4 size. This Japanese-style clear folder has different parts of the image printed on the front flap and the back flap, leaving only Mt. Fuji and Hokusai’s seal visible when placing a white piece of paper into the folder. The folder is printed with a striking shade of red, and goes well with the indigo hues of the “Kajikazawa in Kai Province” techo cover.

This cute Weeks book features bright yellow necktie fabric lined with embroidered images of Dogu and Haniwa. Dogu and Haniwa are precious cultural artifacts of the Tokyo National Museum, and we’ve collaborated with the museum to create a Weeks book and offer some charming accessories to match. Can you tell which ones are Dogu and which ones are Haniwa?

Items from the collection of the Tokyo National Museum have been turned into illustrations that have then been embroidered into detailed images with beige, brown, and orange thread.
The cover has been constructed as a light hardcover book with some give to it so it still bends.

Petite Roses

In a reference room of a fabric manufacturer sleeps a multitude of textiles collected from all around the world. There are textiles that are gorgeous but end up sleeping in the room without being used for a long time . . . The “Classic Fabric” series picks out attractive textiles from that collection to bring it back to life as a techo cover. 

The first cover joining the series is Petit Roses. The cute and delicate rose pattern was born in France more than a hundred years ago and is perfect for the buoyant mood of spring.

365 Days- Spring Weeks Planner

This Weeks book has the full year calendar for 2022 printed right on the cover. The numbers, days of the week, and lines surrounding the calendars are written by Ryota Kisihida, the younger brother of writer Nami Kishida.

Ryota wrote these for us because he had also written the page numbers by hand in his older sister Nami’s book I Love My Family for Who They Are. Ryota, who has Down Syndrome, was unable to write, but practiced until he could write the page numbers for her book. Shigesato Itoi loved his charming writing so much that he asked Ryota to contribute his writing to the 365 Days Weeks cover as well.
