In Quirk, you’ll find a publisher of impractical reference and irreverent nonfiction (probably the first ever). You’ll find a publisher of humor books, of pop culture books, of gift books, of reference books, and of hybrid books that cross over from market to market and genre to genre. Our mission is to amuse, to bemuse, to entertain, and to inform (not necessarily in that order, but usually all at the same time). And so far, our mission has proved possible In our short lifespan, several of Quirk’s books have become bestsellers. There’s a lot more irreverence (and irreference) ahead, so visit our official website for new releases, Web exclusives, general e-fun, and whatever crazy ideas we can dream up.
