Leather Cover for A5 softcover notebooks - Hobonichi, Rhodia, Leuchtturm1917, Nanami, Midori, Life, Apica & more - magenta / black

Sorry, this item has sold.

A5 notebook cover made for the Hobonichi Cousin, but also fits many other A5 sized notebooks (see list below).


The very popular Japanese Hobonichi planner makes a great daily journal, planner, calendar, scrapbook, sketchbook... and it needs a good cover. The exterior piece is thick and supple Horween leather, the inside is bridle leather from the Hermann Oak tannery. Both are superior quality leathers. Each cover is made to order--hand cut, assembled, stitched and finished with care, and it feels simply incredible in your hands. Buy it once and refill it with a new Hobonichi year after year.

This is a perfect and snug fit for the Hobonichi Cousin A5. More info about our Hobonichi covers is available here: http://onestarleathergoods.com/hobonichi/

NOTE: Hobonichi Planner NOT included, this is just the cover for it.

Shipping from United States

I am limiting my post office runs to once a week. Usually this is Friday. Orders will ship by Friday of the week they were ordered.


Default shipping: First Class Domestic and First Class International

This usually means a couple days or less to the west coast, 4-7 days to the east coast, and 5-14+ days to the rest of the world.

FYI: Tracking is not always updated reliably with First Class Mail. Also, tracking is NOT UPDATED reliably, if at all for First Class International mail once it leaves the USA. Don't hate me, I'm just the messenger. 

We do not ship via UPS or FedEx. Sorry/not sorry. 


Priority Mail - The biggest advantage to Priority Mail is that it includes insurance up to $100. Often this is worth the few extra bucks. It is very rare that a package gets damaged or lost, but it does happen.

Priority Mail may speed deliver over regular First Class Mail by a day or two, especially effective to the east coast.

Usually delivered in 1-3 days. Signature Confirmation available upon request. You can add this option at checkout. 

Priority Mail Express - next day delivery to most Unites States addresses. Signature Confirmation available upon request. You can add this option at checkout. 


Priority Mail International. Usually 6-10 days worldwide. You can add this option at checkout.

Priority Mail Express International. Usually 3-5 days worldwide. You can add this option at checkout.

This is a lovely cover. Soft and smooth. Stitching is perfect. I love the length of the pen holder, which easily holds a Pilot Metropolitan. The snap closure feels secure. I have two Clairfontaine 1951 journal (48 sheets x2) in this cover. It is beautiful and high quality. I look forward to using this for the rest of my life. And I purchased the bookmark and personalization, which were both done fantastically.
