There is no need to expand greatly on this small volume. It appeared earlier as a book for young people in an ordinary edition, but has now evidently been deemed deserving of an opportunity to shine. The designer has taken the title literally, creating a small, sophisticated book in which love has been collected in many different ways. The endpapers, the sophisticated typography, the colours red, purple and deep pink. Even a pink ribbon bookmark. The cover has been impressed with a pattern of minuscule dots in red foil. And on the back we actually discover two dots of purple foil. Are they in love?
