What is Authentic Books?

We are a monthly subscription box service that brings together self care with an immersive book experience.

Our boxes are full of quality goodies from small US-based artisans and boutiques that are not only connected to the book but focus on each of our five senses (sight, smell, taste, sound, touch). 5% of the profits from each box supports children's education.
