I love this idea. The British Library are offering this unique opportunity to adopt a rare edition book. What a special and unique gift that would make. The money goes towards conservation so you will be helping to preserve our valuable literary heritage.
Here is a little snippet from the website:
Adopt a Book for Valentine’s Day and choose from our specially selected titles, and we will post you an exclusive limited edition certificate to give to your loved one. Alternatively, choose from one of our classic titles which comes with a book-jacket gift card.
