Hobonichi – Keiko Shibata: Gentle breeze in a dandelion field | A5 Cousin Cover


This cover fits an A5 size Hobonichi Cousin book. It has a “butterfly-stopper” pen holder that uses a pen to hold the cover shut. Printed on the cover is an illustration by artist Keiko Shibata. The fluff is carried far away at night on the breeze that blows softly in the dandelion field. The bear and the cat are gazing enraptured at this beautiful scene. The card pockets in the inner cover also have the dandelion fluff in the night sky printed on them. The two bookmarks are white and light green, with charms reminiscent of dandelion flowers and fluff.

This is a cover only and does not include the Cousin book. The book is available here.
