World Book Night Giveaway: Win Photos from Ransom Riggs’ Vintage Photography Collection

Today, World Book Night is highlighting Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs over on their Twitter and Facebook. It was a real honor to see Miss Peregrine selected for this awesome program, and I figured we'd run a fun giveaway to celebrate today's social media spotlight. 

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!
