  • It’s hard to say what it is about Lily James that makes her seem timeless. Is it her classic look, or spirited acting that reminds us of a storybook heroine? Whatever it is, she’s played more characters in period costume than modern fashion, and we’re not complaining. Let’s take brief tour through time with Lily.

So what if we mashed the two? A little steampunk flair meets classic British royals. Read on as we reimagine our favorite British figures as steampunk heroes.

  • Name-checking of early science fiction authors usually includes Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, and Jules Verne who all wrote during the nineteenth century.

  • I recently had a baby boy, who I named Lincoln. The response I’ve gotten, almost nine times out of a ten is, “That’s a strong name.” It is. Obviously everyone associates it with the sixteenth president (though I’ll be honest, I really got it from a TV show). That said, I figured if you’re going to saddle your kid with a famous name, then you at least need to educate him on his namesake.

    Quirk recently released their own book of kid presidents (appropriately named Kid Presidents), and since I’ve recently become very well versed on children’s books featuring American presidents, I figured I’d compile a list of my favorites (and funniest). After-all, President’s Day is almost here!
