Our October From Afar box will include a stunning CERAMIC MUG, illustrated by digital artist and illustrator Cindy Kang!
Cindy was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea and is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts. Her emotive, colourful and contemporary style has led to collaborations with brands such as ProPublica, Slate, and Samsung and now… Book Box Club!! We’re thrilled to have commissioned Cindy to design a gorgeous book-themed piece of art to feature on a mug in our October box!
Cindy’s artwork is inspired by South Korea and book-lovers and is sure to be adored by all bookworms. The finished design is absolutely stunning, forget drinking tea from this mug, you’ll want to frame it!

Our October book is a tale of twin sisters, separated by a brutal raid in their hometown; they will spend their teenage years trying to find their way back to one another. As they are cast adrift, they will face danger and discover new places, cultures and families, but can their shared dreams pull them back together again?
Written by a brilliant Ghanaian author and set partly in West Africa and partly in Brazil, this stunning paperback will transport you with its evocative language, historical detail and vivid characters.
If you love stories set in far-flung places, by writers such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Ruta Septys and Awaeke Emezi – you will adore this book. Or, if you (like us) are on a mission to read more books by Black authors and champion Black voices, here’s your chance.
As ever, our book of the month will arrive beautifully gift-wrapped and accompanied by a signed book-plate and an invitation to our online book group with the author. Book Box Club subscribers will also receive a blue box crammed with items created by small businesses and inspired by faraway lands!
