From fearsome dragons, to daring princesses, to warring kingdoms, fantasy literature is full of thrilling legends that capture the hearts of readers everywhere. Owlcrate brings this magical genre to life in their “epic” themed box from December 2016. Here’s a peek at the goodies I discovered inside mine!
Owlcrate is a bi-monthly subscription box, with different subscription options sure to suit different budgets. Prices range from $29.99 (USD, monthly payment plus shipping), to $167.94 (USD, six month subscription plus shipping). Created especially for bookworms, these boxes contain “bookish” goodies inspired by popular titles. Each box also includes a hardback novel to introduce readers to more recently published works.
A “spoiler” postcard is included in every box. It has a design matching the theme of the month, plus descriptions of all included items. December’s postcard portrays beloved characters from stories including Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Game of Thrones, to name a few!
Also included in each box is a pin-back button matching the theme.
Here’s an adorable Harry Potter mystery mini figure from Funko. There are 12 different vinyl figures available in this collection.
…mine was Draco Malfoy!
When I think of the word “epic”, Game of Thrones immediately comes to mind, and appropriately, this box included amazing GoT coasters from Dark Horse Comics.
This beautifully illustrated exclusive greeting card from Susanne Draws was inspired by one of my all-time favorite tales, The Chronicles of Narnia.
This gorgeous enamel Lord of the Rings-inspired pin was designed by Jane Mount (Idea Bookshop). Perfect for wearing to your next con (or bookshop!)
This sticker is an exclusive design by Miss Phi that was inspired by V. E. Schwab‘s A Darker Shade of Magic.
Here is the front and back of a promotional bookmark included.
The featured book for December was Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst. This tale follows the epic adventures of Princess Denna as she deals with dangerous magic, travels far away lands, and finds herself in the midst of swoon-worthy romance.
A very cool item included with the featured book is a special letter from the author, Audrey Coulthurst, written just for Owlcrate subscribers. In it she explains her inspiration for the novel. She also encourages readers to believe in their own abilities, much like the book’s protagonist, Denna.
Here’s a sneak peek of what’s up next. January’s Owlcrate theme is Classic Remix, featuring novel that is a a modern day retelling of a fan-favorite classic!
