Back in 2012, Ransom sent me a small box full of strange black and white photos from his personal vintage photography collection. I've used them now and again for promotions, and now, dear World Book Night people, we're offering a few up to you.
Enter our little Rafflecopter below for a chance to win a hardcover copy of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and one of three photos from Ransom's personal collection. We've also dug deep into the Quirk archives and wrangled up a bunch of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children posters, which we'll also giveaway to random entries after the first three winners are picked. How's... 20 of those posters sound? Good? Good.
You can enter by following Quirk, Ransom, World Book Night, etc. on Twitter and Facebook. Good luck, and thanks again, World Book Night!

Here at the Quirk HQ, we love the hilarious, grammatical disaster that is the "doge" meme. And by we, I mean myself, editorial assistant Blair Thornburgh, and frequent Quirk blogger Brian Morrell. True story, Brian's favorite doges in literature post is a treasured piece of writing that is referenced weekly via Gchat.
This April, Quirk is proud to be publishing Haute Dogs by Russell van Kraayyenburg. Full of fancy and appropriately "haute" hot dog recipes, it's just a great cookbook packed with amazing recipes and beautiful food photography. And we'd like to give you a chance to win a copy, in the silliest way possible.
We'd like you to Photoshop your own Haute Doge, and send it over to us here at Quirk! Take the wonderful doge we all know and love, and make that puppy look as fashionable and hip as possible. You can email us your hilarious image (to email@example.com) or tweet it to @QuirkBooks. We'll pick our five favorites on March 10th, post them here on the blog, and send you an early copy of Haute Dogs!
