  • Whenever we here at Quirk Books think we have found everything there is to discover about the weird and wonderful world of medieval manuscripts, something new always pops up and takes us by surprise. This time, what came at us out of left field was the incredible art form of micrography.

  • Happy birthday, Mary Shelley! In honor of the Queen of gothic literature, here are a few ways you can dress like your favorite Victorian. We hope you like tons of lace and the color black.

  • We don't need House Stark to tell us that winter is coming. For some of us (sorry, Midwest) it’s already here. Which means it’s time to examine our cold weather clothing options: namely, the winter coat. Taking our inspiration from some of our favorite literary characters, here’s how you can stay warm and toasty when it feels like north of the Wall outside. We’ve also included handy personality summations so you can figure out which character – and coat - fits you best. 

  • Here at Quirk we’ve spent hours searching the internet for the best bookish, geeky, and crafty links of the past week. Whether you are looking for the National Book Awards Winners or some old-timey pictures of a turkey in a top hat, we’re sure to have something to make your day (and your Thanksgiving!) a little brighter.

  • It’s that time of year when the weather begins to nip, when you eagerly open your closet full of winter clothes and lose yourself to boots and jaunty hats. And, of course, scarves! In celebration of scarf weather, we’ve rounded up some well-known scarves that have graced the necklines of favorite fictional characters.

  • For those who want to relive their love of Jem and the Holograms, the show about a group of foster sisters who are bequeathed a holographic projection system by their father, and then use it to become an internationally acclaimed rock and roll group (as you do), there’s no shortage of modern retellings. But before you dive headfirst into the wonderful IDW comic series, or the new film out October 23, let’s take a moment to discuss which books the original, truly outrageous, Jem and the Holograms would find time to read between all that glamour and glitter, fashion and fame.
