It's true, we do!
We created this charming little video for a meeting with our BFFs Random House back in the Spring. Lots of the Quirk Books staff got on camera and talked about their favorite titles. Figured hey, why not share it with you too?
Do you have a favorite Quirk backlist title that didn't pop up in the video? Let us know in the comments!
