Quirk Books is pretty much my new favorite thing. Having already read and loved Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Horrostor, I was completely entertained when they sent me two books of funny postcards: Hugs & Misses – “full of lovelorn ladies, roguish gentlemen, renegade Cupids, and indecent proposals,” and Stars and Swipes – “with farcical frontiersmen, prattling presidents and other all-American oddities.”
These are two books full of perforated postcards of amazingly silhouette captioned images. Like this:
If I have your mailing address be on the look-out for some amazing mail! There was great debate at our house over Thanksgiving as to whether Hugs and Misses or Stars and Swipes was funnier. I voted romance while my darling sister and husband voted Awkward Americana.
My advice is to get both and report back to me with a vote. These will make a perfect stocking stuffer for anyone with a quirky sense of humor. Or they’re delightfully ridiculous to send to any pen-pal!
