Founded in 2002, Quirk Books publishes a highly curated list of entertaining, enlightening, and strikingly unconventional books for adults and children in a number of genres and categories. Quirk publishes books that are meant to be shared and discussed—books that are objects of desire—and that have the potential to reach the widest possible readership because of their positioning and packaging. Some of Quirk’s best-selling titles include Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Grady Hendrix’s genre busting horror novels My Best Friend’s Exorcism and The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, the legendary mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, The Baby Owner’s Manual, and The Astrology of You and Me. While headquartered on a cobblestone street in historic Old City, Philadelphia, Quirk’s books are distributed worldwide by Penguin Random House and available wherever books are sold.
