Our Story

I’m Daphne, and I consider myself a lifelong bibliophile and geek fangirl. I read voraciously and love all bookish things! For more about me, give me a follow on Twitter.

I’ve been part of the book community for many years and I enjoy meeting, working with, and spending time with bookish people. I started Illumicrate because I wanted to curate something for book lovers everywhere, like an ideal gift package to share all my favourite books and fandoms. My aim for Illumicrate is to send you the best new reads plus bookish items that are fun, beautiful, geeky and all the wonderful adjectives – things that I would love to own and I know that others would too.

I work with my good friend Caitlin, who answers all your queries, runs our social media accounts and Illumicrate Club Facebook Group and helps curate some of the lovely items in the boxes.

Thank you for considering Illumicrate! I really hope you love it as much as we’ve loved putting it together!
