This cover is based on the original Hobonichi smartphone app Dokonoko, which was designed for viewing and posting pictures of pets and animals.
These Dokonoko icons were drawn by illustrator Ayumi Ohashi, who drew a great number of illustrations of dogs and cats for the Dokonoko app in addition to these icons. The lively little drawings are so cute, they made their way onto a cover because we want to carry these little critters everywhere.
The cats and dogs scattered across the cover have all kinds of expressive faces to cheer you up just by carefully looking through them all. The cover is almost like a public square where all the animals come to gather, much like the app the design was created for.
The design is printed onto a texture material reminiscent of a canvas, carefully reproducing the touches of the original pencil lines. The balance of humorous illustrations and calming color scheme makes for a neat book. The Dokonoko logo incorporated into the illustration is also drawn by Ohashi.
