Despite there being lots of delays to this box (that were not in any way Illumicrate’s fault!), the June Out of the Woods box has to be one of my favourites! I read this month’s book earlier (you can read my review here) and could NOT wait to see what Illumicrate was going to do with their edition and the wait was worth it! The Illumicrate edition of The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid has an exclusive cover with slight colour variations, gorgeous artwork on the inside of the dust jacket (done by Warickaart), embossing on the hardcover and stunning stenciled edges! I’m so glad I waited for this instead of buying the regular edition!
Items in this month’s box include:
-A stunning banner featuring The Darkest Part of the Forest artwork by Abel Klaer
-A super cute glass water bottle designed by Fez Inkwright
-A wooden bookmark inspired by Among Beasts and Briars designed by NO0NEDESIGNS
-A wooden We Hunt the Flame pin designed by Hannah Hitchman
-And finally, the monthly pin insipred by The Wolf and the Woodsman designed by Stacey McEvoy-Caunt
What do you think of the box? I thought the artwork was SO stunning, especially the author note, which had artwork that was available with the Kelpers Books pre-orders. The illustration features two of the main characters from this month’s books and was done by @rudebettle.
