Once I was a unicorn.
Maybe you were too.
Even if you can't remember.
You're here now.
And so am I.
Once Unicorns are easy to spot.
- They lose track of time easily.
- They can't remember their childhood
- Or their childhoods were chock full of magic.
- Once Unicorns wonder about the world.
- They wonder about their place in it.
If you're a unicorn you can email us. You can connect with other unicorns on twitter and facebook.

Volume Two is out in the world!
This is the first secret package
You can get one - $11

The number 11 is lucky because it represents two horns.
But there are also ways to reserve a Whole Year's Worth
Mysterious packages documenting unicorn activity will arrive throughout the year in the mail. There will be comic books. There will be arm bands. There will be more stickers. And you'll find out about those two Once Unicorns, standing by that airplane hangar across the road from a forest--you'll learn their names. You'll learn how to build a proper sheet fort, and why one of them thinks brains are like French Toast.

People call them stickers. We've been putting them on things. They help us find other unicorns in our neighborhoods.
