Mushrooms are having a moment. Be it because of the aesthetic trends of cottagecore or dark academia, a real passion for all things earthy and natural, or the fact fungi are just damn cool, mushrooms are everywhere. You can find mushrooms both outdoors in fairy circles or garden beds, as well as inside on tote bags, wallpaper, and indeed, bookish goods.

For fans of magic, especially the plant variety, as well as fans of fantasy and otherworldly fun, mushrooms are iconic. They’re tiny portals into entirely new worlds and possibilities: if you’ve spent any time wandering around outside in an area prone to mushrooms, you’ll discover the wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors they come in, as well as the depths and patterns in which they’ll grow. My native garden here in the midwest has a couple of spots where there are both big and small trumpets emerging from the dirt after a muggy day, and I love seeing how different each one looks and how different they look each time they emerge.

Find below a sweet assortment of fungus-themed treats. This will mostly be mushroom bookmarks and mushroom notebooks, since those are in abundance and offer such a wide range of pattens and styles. But you’ll find a few more fun toadstool surprises as well.

And for my fellow elder millennials, here’s a little treat for you.
