Subscription box: Illumicrate
Theme/Month: Out of the Woods, June 2021
Ownership: Subscribed on their 6 boxes option. If you are interested in purchasing an Illumicrate subscription, you can do it on their website.
Illumicrate is a book subscription box, it usually features fantasy and sci-fi but not exclusively young adult, sometimes it features adult too. It usually contains a new release, a pin and several bookish goodies.
Despite last month’s box being my most anticipated read and a great box, I think this is one of my favourite boxes of the year from them, so let’s see why I think so, starting from the leaflet in the middle of the lower row:
- Out of the Woodes leaflet with the photo challenge and contents detailed.
- A wordmark with a quote about it, but I love the sleepy fox and yes I won’t use it as a bookmark but the design wins me over.
- The main book which was stunning, The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid.
- A creepy kinda print which goes well with some others and I just like the artwork.
- The Lord of the Rings puzzle in a “book” case, my puzzle-loving heart is extra happy since it is from LOTR.
- A beautiful and delicate glass bottle with birch trees and a quote woven around, the design of it looks amazing when you fill the bottle.
- The monthly pin, which as per usual is a nice pin.
- A woodpin for We Hunt the Flame
- Probably my least favourite item, a print that hangs in a fancy hanging way for Holly Black, I think?
Overall, the theme and items completely matched and the vibe was spot on with it, the designs were delicate and forest and had a tinge of the creepy and the beautiful. I felt like the whole box was a good one and I am very happy.
