Illumicrate started life as a quarterly subscription box, and we're proud that we were the first UK book subscription box! We launched in the summer of 2015, and our very first box was November 2015. We now offer two options for the Illumicrate monthly subscriptions: a full box subscription and a book only subscription, which features the books included in our monthly boxes.

In 2021 we launched Afterlight, a romance subscription box that is now bi-monthly. Evernight, a quarterly horror subscription box, was launched in July 2023.

We also offer special editions of books and book sets, with a range of customisations exclusive to Illumicrate. We have also held virtual signings and in 2019 we launched our Debut Boxes, showcasing new debut authors. Our Collections, Archives and Mini-boxes focus on a particular author or fandom. You can see some examples of our past products on our website!
