Illumicrate is a UK based fantasy and science fiction book box that has monthly boxes or just a monthly book only subscription. Each box also includes a selection of bookish goodies some more practical, others more decorative set around a monthly theme. November’s theme is Death and Fortune.
The items included in this box are a fabric book jacket, the next Greek Mythology teacup inspired by Nemesis, a Scorpio Races inspired book tin, a She Who Became the Sun metal bookmark, and a hanging ornament.
Illumicrate, like other book boxes, include a new hard cover each month and most months a letter from the author. This months book is Little Thieves by Margaret Owen.
