This cover design features artwork from an unreleased work by Taiyo Matsumoto. The main character in the picture is reading manga without a single care about the white bird sitting on his head. Look closely and you’ll see the famous manga title “Black Jack” on the book.


The gorgeous details that have gone into this drawing make for a believable scene, down to the lines of the sweater and the look of leather on the traditional Japanese firm-sided randoserubackpack.

The back outer pocket contains pictures of the five pins from the boy’s hat to keep the lovely artwork present on the cover no matter which side of your closed techo is facing up.

This cover is enough to make anyone happy. We hope the techo becomes as important for you as that manga has for the child.

All covers are hand-made and may contain slight variances

Each and every cover is individually sewn by a factory worker hand-operating a sewing machine. Best efforts are made to ensure consistent sizes and specifications, but there may be slight differences.

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.
