This Nerdy Post is all about Alice in Wonderland!
Unicorn Quote Mini Print
On the back of the info card, there’s this quote from Alice’s conversation with the unicorn in Through the Looking Glass. There’s something about the vanilla hue of the card combined with the undulating pastel shapes of these letters that remind me of playful, whimsical things like cupcakes, rainbow sprinkles, and of course, adorable unicorns. I feel like the tiny unicorn on this card doesn’t quite match the style of the rest of the card (it looks a bit like a cartoony sticker that’s been added to this dreamy design), but I’m not complaining too much. A unicorn is a unicorn! I feel like this print would be so cute framed and put in a child’s room (or just my grown-up bedroom, haha!).
Through the Looking Glass Poster
There are two, count ’em, TWO posters in this month’s box! The first one is this sketch-like illustration by Instagram artist @tjlubrano, whose artwork has made a few cameos in this subscription lately. I think I prefer Alexis’ aesthetic, but this artist’s style of drawing characters is just soooo cute!
Wonderland Objects Poster
This is the second poster, which was done by Alexis. The coolest thing about this poster, which I didn’t even notice at first, is that there are little trinkets from Wonderland hidden within this fanciful, floral quote! Can you spot them? There are “Drink Me” vials, a white rabbit, a cupcake… See what you can find!
This bookmark is a collaboration between Alexis and artist @riddlesteashoppe. Again, I find myself loving Alexis’ side a bit more (she did the quote), but I think the stacked teacups, all of which echo a different element of the classic story, is a really sweet concept. Also, I just adore the dormouse, so I’m really happy he’s made an appearance here, hehe. The quote is really fitting for a bookmark, too!
Ugh, this design is amazing! I love how simple and clean it looks, despite all of the details! Everything is spaced out so beautifully. The flamingo/golf club is so expressive, and I love the dainty rose pattern inside its body. As usual, the quality of this sticker is really nice. It’s velvety smooth and big enough to make quite a statement on a water bottle or laptop.
Always Speak the Truth Notepad
I can never have enough notepads. I’m forever making lists and jotting down to-dos. A long pad like this one is just the kind of thing I need, and the Red Queen quote is perfection! I love the twirly twisting arrows guiding you from one part of the quote to the next.
Of COURSE there’s a mirror in the Alice box! How clever! I love the other hand mirrors I’ve gotten via this subscription (I tuck them in my purse before a big day or night out). The quote is a great match for this little “looking glass.” I’m not sure if I’ll keep this in another purse or pop it in my desk to keep it handy!
Coloring Book Postcard
A custom coloring book postcard comes in every box. I’m always in awe of the intricate, unique designs that Alexis comes up with for each theme. I’m going to really enjoy coloring in all of the different Wonderland imagery woven into this drawing.
This bookmark was designed by @beedooto, and it works by clipping pages together and holding them tight between its two magnets. To be honest, it’s not the strongest set of magnets, so don’t expect to clip more than maybe 5 pages. Still, this is so darn cute (I’m a sucker for cats… especially Cheshire ones), that I’m totally using it!
Verdict: As usual, Nerdy Post didn’t disappoint! The box is only $13.95 a month, and I feel like the quality of the original artwork makes the subscription a great deal. I love the sticker, the hand mirror, and the two posters, in particular. If you have a broad love of art and many a great fandom, then this box is sure to please!
