Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Are you looking for something literary this Valentine's Day?
Why not Say it with Shakespeare?
Lots of literary gift ideas at Something Literary including Shakespeare Love Badges, Mirrors, Magnets and Bookmarks.

There's also some beautiful Emma Bridgewater notebooks and writing sets, and my new favourite book: Love Letters: 2000 Years of Romance.

This beautiful book from the British Library celebrates two thousand years of love letter history, from ancient Egypt to the present day. Included here are facsimile reproductions of twenty-five letters, which are fully transcribed along with engaging commentaries about the correspondents and their circumstances and portraits of the writers and recipients. Love Letters includes correspondence by figures such as Henry VIII, Charles Dickens, Charlotte Brontë, Admiral Nelson, Oscar Wilde, and Mervyn Peake. The words of love letters allow us insights into the private relationships of people across centuries, cultures, and continents, and the original manuscripts of such letters grant the reader a direct connection with the author of such personal words. 

All orders dispatched same/next day.
