The text on this shirt says:

Making Money Is Art

I like that Verbal actually designed one of the items in this box. I hope to see more exclusives like this in upcoming fancy boxes!

Chemistry Shot Glass Set – Value $15

This set is something I probably would have picked up at an Urban Outfitters sale a few years ago, but I think I’ve aged out of the fun-shot glass demographic.

Abstract CIty by Christoph Niemann (Hardcover) – Value $24.95

From Fancy:

In July 2008, illustrator and designer Christoph Niemann began Abstract City, a visual blog for the New York Times. His posts were inspired by the desire to re-create simple and everyday observations and stories from his own life that everyone could relate to. In Niemann’s hands, mundane experiences such as riding the subway or trying to get a good night’s sleep were transformed into delightful flights of visual fancy. The struggle to keep up with housework became a battle against adorable but crafty goblins, and nostalgia about New York manifested in simple but strikingly spot-on LEGO creations. This brilliantly illustrated collection of reflections on modern life includes all 16 of the original blog posts as well as a new chapter created exclusively for the book.

Here are a few pages inside the book:

Verdict: I’m pretty pleased with this box. With the exception of the shot glasses, we will use everything, and the Fancy is definitely introducing me to some cool books! What do you think of the Verbal Fancy Box?

  1. Hi! I got shoptiques.com giftcard $10 from my fancybox, but I live in Russia and this shop doesn’t deliver their items to my country. So I’d like to give my activation code as a present to usa citizens. Contact me by e-mail: redrumkate@gmail.com Hope it will be more useful for someone else 🙂

  2. Couldn’t you use the shot glasses to store office supplies or as mini flower vases?

    • Cute idea – thanks!
