With August halfway through, it’s that time of year when the preview for the 2022 Hobonichi planner is released. I’ve blogged numerous times before on my obsession with this Japanese planner, and this year will be no exception.
This is always my favourite time of the year, because I get to see a month full of articles about the various covers, collaborations and some interesting interviews about the upcoming 2022 line-up. The actual sales will start over three days: September 1, 2 and 3.
A couple of my highlights from the preview calendar:
- Shigesato Itoi has a message for Hobonichi users, and as always it’s well written and thoughtful.
- How to choose the Hobonichi Techo books is a great place to start if you’re new to the brand or event the concept of a planner.
- How to choose the Hobonichi Techo covers can help you narrow down your choice of cover from the huge selection on offer.
- Introducing the Hobonichi Note is the début of a new notebook to their line-up, which can be helpful for users who need a gentle nudge to encourage them to write.
At the time of writing this, only one new cover has been previewed, a collaboration with the Michael Jackson brand, with plenty of more previews throughout the rest of August 2022. Half the fun of using a Hobonichi is seeing the wide array of covers they come up with and choosing one of your own.
So follow along with the preview calendar, and I look forward to starting 2022 with a blank canvas in my Hobonichi planner to chronicle the upcoming year.
