(Is that right? Did I use “bae” right, trendmongers and #coolteenz of the internet? Please LMK!!)
Being in love is grand! The initial infatuation, the late nights together, the way the pages whisper when you turn them...really, the best long-term relationship in life is the one you have with books.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to treat the special ~tome-one~ in your life to some stylish bookish accessories. Whether it’s a new bookmark, a decadent slipcover, or a nifty ex libris plate to stake your claim, pick up a treat for your every BFFL (book-friend-for-life) this February 14. Need something shipped last minute? You can scope out the Quirk Zazzle store.

Real talk? Wilhelm Staehle is one talented gentleman.
Yesterday, the Quirk publicity team awoke to find a hilarious video in our inboxes, crafted by Staehle himself. A Brief History of the Love Letter is just that, and serves as a great introduction to Staehle's love-themed postcard book, Hugs & Misses.
Watch, and enjoy! Thanks Wilhelm!

As we know, there are some characters written out there who would make amazing boyfriends. Well, for every one decent human being, there are dozens of terrible ones. I mean, terrible. Would-not-date-ever. And I’m not entirely sure why anyone would.This isn’t to say I dislike the books on this list, I’m just saying I wouldn’t fall in love with any of these guys.
