Welcome to Prudence and the Crow! As we so lengthily, but accurately say, we’re a London-based vintage paperback subscription service – basically, you sign up for a box once, monthly, or for several months at a time, then fill out our lovely questionnaire with a couple of details about what you like and what you don’t, and we post you a letterbox-sized thing of beauty, containing a book we’ve chosen just for you, and a couple of other lovely things! So, once a month, you get to sit down and read something special, and, we hope, just your cup of tea.
If you haven’t already, do take a wander over to prudenceandthecrow.com and have a look at our beautiful website, all lovingly handcoded by the Crow herself. There, you can see the nuts and bolts of who we are and what we do, and sign up to join in!
This is something we’ve wanted to do for years. We’re huge fans of the subscription box concept, indeed, Prudence is signed up to several, but what we really love is the memory of the 1980s fan club welcome pack. If you weren’t around for ’80s fanclubs, then picture the excitement of getting a pack of informative paper, combined with A STICKER, and A BADGE, and sometimes even A PENCIL! In the very best ones? A woven patch. Oh yeah *happy sigh*. So, there’s a chance you’re smiling nostalgically, and if you are, this might be just your cup of tea! You also might, if you’re trying to picture it and failing to capture any sense of excitement at all, really need to know what it’s like. Give us a go! And the best thing of all? We can send you a box of this feeling every month.
That’s about it for now. We’ll be here with all kinds of thoughts and feelings, topics and wonderings, and we’re super excited to see who you are and what you love. And, hopefully, to give you so much more of it!
Prudence. And the Crow.
