Guys. There’s a town in Turkey called Batman. Batman, Turkey. You’re welcome.
Leonard Knight passed away yesterday, at the age of 82. He’d spent thirty years living rough in the desert, building a mountain more or less by himself, out of mud, debris salvaged from the desert, and tens of thousands of gallons of paint donated to him by passing pilgrims. He was a unique, simple, kind soul, who I was lucky enough to meet a few times on my various sojourns into the Salton Sea area. You can see his mountain — dubbed Salvation Mountain — at the end of my film The Accidental Sea.

When Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs came out, we made these adorable Valentines inspired by photos in the book.
And now that Hollow City is out and about, we decided to do it again. Just for you, Quirk fans.
Check out two more Valentines, after the jump. Feel free to send them off to your friends, or share them on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and/or Tumblr! Enjoy!
I adore these Ms. Peregrine valentines.
