Full Moon Magic
This month’s OwlCrate Theme is Full Moon Magic, which fits perfectly with Wyrd and Wonder.
I love it when things work out like that.
And without further ado . . .
A Quick Summary
- canvas pouch with Oscar Wilde quote that contains a bamboo moon phase banner designed by OwlCreate team member @paperbackbones
- Shatter Me-inspired tote bag by Unlucky Design
- spiral notebook featuring an Oscar Wilde quote with artwork by Kim Becker Design
- Winterwood-inspired crescent moon bracelet designed by Team OwlCrate
- 300-piece jigsaw puzzle of Harry Potter-inspired artwork by @atalienart
- a signed, exclusive edition of Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie
- the monthly enamel pin inspired by this month’s book by White Wide Woods
My favorite item, once again, is the enamel pin. Moons and owls. It’s a lovely addition to my collection.
And the jigsaw puzzle. First, Remus Lupin is one of my favorite HP characters. I mean how can you not love him?
Second, OwlCrate had me at jigsaw puzzle. The artwork is stunning. I can’t wait to put it together.
The Special Edition Book
By Kathryn Purdie, Bone Crier’s Moon is a reimagining of Les Dames Blanches, French folklore that women in white kill men who refuse to dance with them on bridges. In the book, these bone criers are part of a matriarchal society that performs certain rituals according to the phases of the moon.
The OwlCrate edition with the blue cover and gold edging is so stunning.
I mean, compare the OwlCrate special edition to the regular book. The blue color, the larger artwork
No comparison! And the book itself sounds like an interesting read.
The May Box Preview
The theme of the May box is Rebels With A Cause. This box will include a graphic novel from Oni Press, plus a special edition book. So I’m excited to see what the GN will be.
Now OwlCrate already has sold out the May box. But you can join the wait list.
What I recommend is going ahead and subscribing to ensure you get on the list for June.
The Subscription Deets
A one-month subscription costs $29.99. One hardback book (purchased through your local indie bookstore) can cost about that much. So this is definitely a deal. You get a slight price break if you do a 3-month or 6-month prepay subscription. Since I’ll be moving overseas at soon, I opted for month-to-month.
Plus, if you have kiddos, there is an OwlCrate Jr. version. The May OC Jr. box theme is Elements & Alchemy.
