We're incredibly excited to feature George M. Johnson's All Boys Aren't Blue as our lead book in this box! They've generously sent us signed bookplates, which you'll find tucked inside the cover in order for you to experience the unique joy of affixing them. This box includes a letter from the author.
Other delights you'll discover include another award-winning banned book, an adorably classic reading tracker from The Square Shop, a progress pride flag pin, natural lip balm from Furtive Fox, and a 2 oz. book-inspired candle by From the Page.
We were blown away by Kiese Laymon’s Heavy. It’s a a journey about so much: It’s the vulnerable, brave, complicated memoir we wish we could write. This box includes a hardcover copy of Heavy, along with a bookplate signed by the author.
Some say the accompanying enamel pin makes Laymon look like a god-fearing bus mechanic. Not what we intended, but we’re okay with it as long as our admiration for the author is clear.
Alongside Heavy, you'll find a signed paperback copy of Nic Stone's Dear Justyce, the followup to Dear Martin.
We’re crazy about the old-fashioned coin pouches made for holding your book money in this box. And we think you’ll be stoked to send off some fan mail to your favorite author using the striking plantable greeting card from Just My Type Letterpress Paperie—or enjoy planting it in your own garden.
This remarkable box contains a signed first edition of Printz Honor book Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas, a prequel to the much-banned The Hate U Give, plus a book cover pin designed by the supremely talented Robin Morgan. We're also thrilled to include Nic Stone's Dear Martin in this box.
We made room in this box for the cutest date stampers we've ever encountered along with an ink pad and a couple of checkout cards you can use in your elegant (or imaginary?) lending library. And those clear little squares that look like bumps of slime? They're glue dots you can use to adhere the card pockets to the inside covers of your books.
This extraordinary box features Maia Kobabe's groundbreaking graphic novel Gender Queer. E designed the limited edition lapel pin that comes in this box! We're also pleased to pass along one of the author's magnificent signed bookplates (shown in the last picture) to unite with eir book.
We stuffed in a cute little memo book, along with an awesome tote you can use to carry around your banned books.

This box of books banned in prisons features Pulitzer Prize-winner Blood in the Water by Heather Ann Thompson, a searing investigation into the 1971 Attica Prison uprising and the aftermath. The accompanying lapel pin depicts L.D. Barkley, the elegant and heroic spokesman for inmates' rights who was among those gunned down during the prison retaking.
