From the creator of the eminently adorable Instagram account @sadanimalfacts (featuring such tragic true tidbits as, ‘rhinos make a squeaking sound to call for their friends when they’re lost’). This wonderful, all-inclusive celebration of the weirdness of love features notable couples through history, animal courting rituals, and all the strange things we do when we’re half of a pair. I’m tossing you a softball here, folks: get this sweet, silly book for your partner for in lieu of the Hallmark card. Or for yourself, if you’re a single, hopeless romantic like me!
This is a book about weird couples and the tiny two-person universes they create.
It’s about accidentally wearing the exact same outfit. It’s about made-up songs. It’s about your rules for the thermostat. It’s about breakfast rituals, and funny nicknames, and long hugs, and that voice you pretend the cat has.
If you’re half of a weird couple, or if you have a favorite weird couple, or if you just love love, this book is for you.
Includes 1 sheet of temporary tattoos!
