Our first glimpse inside the Culture Carton Box for February

what's in the culture carton box

Everything that we have received in our February “Pocket Notebook Box”. As always we are loving the leather goods that are included as well as the book!


So what is all this stuff?

Our box insert

The reverse details each of the items that we received as well as their retail values.


Blackthorn Leather Notebook Coverblackthorn leather notebook cover


Our big ticket item for the month is this leather notebook cover. We are always pleased with the high quality leather products that we receive in this subscription box. This notebook cover is made with high quality leather and crafted USA and will last a lifetime

We were immediately in love with the creamy soft leather!

And the back is stamped with the Blackthorn logo

And of course you’ll need some notebooks to put inside your notebook cover! There were 3 notebooks included in the set that we received and their pages were in the grid style

We really love the yellow threading in these – it adds great contrast to the gray covers


John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men”of mice and men


We received the Centennial Edition of “Of Mice and Men”. We love the rough edged pages and the decorative cover. We have read this book before and while it’s a quick read – it’s a hard one. A tragic tale that will stay with the reader. Great for readers of all ages and from all walks of life.


Palomino Blackwing Pencilspalomina blackwing pencils


The Blackwing #602 Pencil’s were a favorite of authors like John Steinbeck and with all those new notebooks you are going to need a writing utensil. We are loving the flat ferule and eraser! Definitely a sleek pencil!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Culture Carton Box is an excellent assortment of items. We love the way the lifestyle items come together to give an entire set and how well thought out the book selection is each month. The presentation is great, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is phenomenal. Each of the items included in this box is top of the line. We particularly love the notebook cover! And curation is amazing. We love how unique the theme was this month, we’ve never received a pocket notebook box of anything and each of the products was just so high quality – what wasn’t there to love?

As far as box economy the Culture Carton that we received costs $45 and for that we received $81 in items which is an incredible deal!
