Comments Love Letters: An Anthology of Passion

  • Patrick

    If you are a true romantic, such as I am, and attend all those romantic period independent films from abroad, as I do, then you will savour this book. Lavish artwork and illustration caress and enhance the personal prose of the famous and infamous, writers and characters of history,in this tempestuous presentation. I can only describe it as opening a lavishly designed box, to find the most luscious array of the finest chocolates in the world, being handed a goblet of the nectar of the best wines [...]

    I recently found this book packed away and, instead of dismissing it as the fancy of a younger me, realized how clever and beautiful it is. The facsimiles of love letters, with their tactile nature (you can pull some out of their envelopes or unfold others) are complemented by quotations from historic personalities and images of paintings. It's fun on many levels and encourages the reader to learn more about the people who wrote the letters to discover more about their context.

    Perfect reading for Valentine's Day, or any day when you want to immerse yourself in true romance. Especially love the small inscription below the letters describing who wrote to who, and the occasion.

    I bought this book back in the late nineties. It's one of those fun, interactive books that look collage like and have actual pieces of paper printed with words of love letters that you can extract out of an actual envelope. It's got some good stuff in it. Definitely for the romantic.
