Hobonichi Techo 2017

I haven’t used a paper planner in years and so can’t really justify getting one (I even still bought one for years, that would never see much use), but I still lust for one every year, and the object of my desire is always the Mother-inspired covers that have been part of the Hobonichi Techo collection for the past few years — this year you have 1994 (pictured above), Memories (picture below), and Ness. Why the Mother (or Earthbound, as it was known outside of Japan) covers? Mother creator Shigesato Itoi is also behind the Hobonichi Techo line.
