Our Story

The originators’ Max and Lea met online and connected through their love of books. Soon it was clear what they both wanted: to create, to have fun and to share their love for books, especially TJ Klunes books, with others. With Max’s passion and Lea’s love for art they made the perfect pair to get together and do just that.  After a couple of years Max left and Tessa, one of Leas other friends, took their place.

Lovely Bird is a place and a home for everyone who is passionate, creative and loves stories. Everyone who is proud of who they are and who wants to express their love for queer books, pretty things and art.


The People


Lea is a passionate book lover from Germany. When she isn’t working at her favorite place, the bookstore, she spends her days reading, writing, drawing and taking care of her cat Louie. Lea is a self taught artist. She started drawing when she was little and hasn’t stopped ever since. If there is an available surface to doodle on, she will be doing just that. Her biggest hope for Lovely Bird is that it will become a place that makes everyone feel welcome and understood, and that the products bring a hell of a lot of fun.


Tessa has always loved stories and everything related to them. Growing up she wanted to be an author but never quite got there (She does have a lot of book ideas though). Today, if she isn’t studying, she is either reading or doing something else related to books. As a lesbian, she believes that representation is one of the most important parts of today’s media. Because books, especially books about the stories of queer people, can help those struggling with their identity in a lot of different ways.
