We are so happy it’s the weekend. We love nothing more than long lie-ins and breakfasts-in-bed with our current reads. We have even more to help you celebrate the best days of the week in the form of THIS unboxing blog, an exciting supplier reveal tomorrow and a cheeky discount code for all of the people signed up to our newsletter list. Click here now to join us for our February Troublemakers box before they all sell out!
We were so excited to send out our January boxes for many reasons…we absolutely loved the featured book and we literally squealed with delight when they arrived. I think you’ll all agree that the cover is to DIE for! The foil, the illustration the colour! We are thrilled that we can finally start sharing all our backed up instagram photos of it. Get ready for some serious feed spam, guys! It always helps when the author is absolutely lovely too. Shout out to Alice who has been so supportive and excited about Book Box Club. The Clubhouse meeting is going to be a blast, I can tell! I can’t to chat about Ink with all of our January members.
Thank you once again to everyone who has kept the box contents a secret until now. Rest assured you can now feel free to share all your photos/blogs as much as you like. Remember to give us a tag because there is nothing we love more than seeing people enjoy our boxes. Thank you to all of the lovely crafters and small businesses who helped us create our Immortal Stories box. Each Book Box Club parcel is a collaboration with so many people: artists, crafters, printers, box manufacturers, even that turquoise shred comes from another super efficient someone and that’s without mentioning the helpful team down at my local post office who go above and beyond to help us out. Seriously, team Book Box Club grows every month and its so exciting to have so many people along for the ride!
So without much further ado…here is our Immortal Stories box…
INK by ALICE BROADWAY: Your life story told upon your skin, your mistakes inked upon your body for all to see, your memories forever collected in a book of your skin, passed down by your ancestors through the ages… But only if you are deemed worthy of being remembered. www.alice-broadway.com

UNASHAMEDLY BOOKISH MUG by BOOK BOX CLUB: Brew yourself a cup of Immortalitea, immerse yourself in the world of our stunning featured book and show off your bookishness with our Ink inspired mug, exclusively for our January members. We are so proud of how this mug came out because we illustrated and designed it ourselves. Who knew seeing your design on a mug could be so satisfying?!
