New arrival 4

My Hobonichi order for 2020 has arrived.

It even comes with an official Nintendo Seal of Quality.

So far I nearly always went with the A6 avec version (2 x 6 months)1). This year, for the first time, I went with the English year-long version. I was surprised to see that time-wise only 12 noon is marked. Compared to the Japanese version this might be an opportunity to use two lines per hour of the day, i.e. allow more space for day-time and less for night-time. I’m looking forward to trying the new layout next year, but I will start using the new leather cover this year. I wonder whether it will age as nicely as Gunther’s2
