The mug is obviously the best part of this box. I’ll use the woodmark & tea even though I’m not a fan of the fandoms.
I’m severly underwhelmed with the items paperbackbones collaborates on. So far they’ve been pretty lame: bamboo moon phase banner, habit tracker, paperclip set? Seriously? A nice bookstagram feed doesn’t equate to a designer.
Not to mention, TWO errors in one piece? Big money is spent on these items. Why aren’t multiple people spellchecking? I’ll be interested to see if Owlcrate will set this right.
