These humorous book Valentine’s cards are part of the ‘Literary Valentines’ series by Adam Ellis for Buzzfeed. Instead of focusing on famous book characters, these cards put authors at the center of the cards, quite literally with an animated illustration of their heads.
The Literary Valentines includes well-known authors like Edgar Allen Poe, Truman Capote and J.K. Rowling, with a message that is on theme with the nature of their writing, like the card for J.R.R. Tolkien fans, which reads: “You are my preciousss,” or the one featuring a zombified Max Brooks that states: “I like you for your brain.” This series is beautifully illustrated and any of these cards would totally be a delight for book lovers to receive.
