Ever since I launched my first proper collection for A Rose Cast last October, I've been adding the occasional new item to the store as the idea percolated and became something real. But recently I have had quite a few ideas for new products so I decided, rather than release them in drips and drabs, to put a focus over the summer months so they would all be ready for the Christmas season.
And so today I launch 14 new items to my store, spanning the three sub-brands of A Rose Cast - Book Nerd, Girl Gang and Sofa Beast - and of a range of product types, from art prints, greeting cards, to pocket mirrors and sticker packs.
Art prints have made up the bulk of new products. We have four new feminist inspired art prints:
- Smash the Patriarchy
- Girls Just Wanna Have FUNdamental Rights
- A Woman's Place is in the Revolution, and
- The Young are at the Gates
And three new author inspired quote based art prints for all you book lovers:
- “I ransack public libraries, and find them full of sunk treasure.” - Virginia Woolf
- “With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” - Oscar Wilde
- "She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain" - Louisa May Alcott
Cards & Pocket Mirrors
There is a new card available to enable you to tell your favourite bibliophile how much you love them; I Love You More Than the Smell of Old Books.
And, previously an exclusive for the Books That Matter launch book subscription box, a pocket mirror that is useful for all those times when someone won't leave you alone when you're reading; Go Away! I'm Reading.
Sticker packs have always proved wonderfully popular with you lot, but my previous bullet journal / planner stickers were showing their age. So I decided to give them a little revamp and there are now two fresh sets of bullet journal / planner stickers. On top of this, there are three new sets of decorative sticker packs, one for each of my sub-brands.
- Feminist Revolution Sticker Pack
- Crazy Cat Lady Monthly Bullet Journal / Planner Sticker Pack
- Cat Lover Sticker Pack
- Bookish Reading Bullet Journal / Planner Sticker Pack
- Bibliophile / Book Lover Sticker Pack
So which of the new collection is your favourite?
