Valentine's Day Gifts

Whether you're looking for Valentine's Day Gifts for "her" or for "him" then what more romantic a gift could there be than a beautifully produced book of poetry. For example, Shakespeare's Sonnets including the lines:

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

or

Haply I think on thee, and then my state,Like to the lark at break of day arisingFrom sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven’s gate;For thy sweet love remember’d such wealth bringsThat then I scorn to change my state with kings.

or Love Song by Ted Hughes, included in The Crow

He loved her and she loved him.His kisses sucked out her whole past and future or tried toHe had no other appetite
She bit him she gnawed him she sucked...

Perhaps we'll leave that one there. Take a look through our Valentine's collection. Many of the books are signed and beautifully illustrated in addition to the unworldly - or should that be earthy love poems in them.
