Wilhelm Staehle’s Hugs & Misses, Stars & Swipes: Bloggers, Request Your Review Copies!

Posted by Eric Smith

Next month, we've got two very fancy books coming out, illustrated and written by Wilhelm Staehle. Stars & Swipes (pictured above) and Hugs & Misses

Some of you might know Wilhelm from his hilarious silhouette-webcomic Silhouette Masterpiece Theater. Others might recognize his name as the alter ego for an incredibly talented book designer in New York, who has worked on covers for folks like Michael Chabon, MIchael Crichton, and many, many more. However you know the guy, we are excited to be publishing his postcard books, which collect some of his best and wittiest cutouts. 

And we'd like to get these postcard books into your hands, reviewers! You can learn more about the books over on Staehle's awesome website, and of course, here on Quirk via these pages: Stars & SwipesHugs & Misses
