Synopses & Reviews
"Marielle Bancou's hand-painted books are works of art that are also physically irresistible -- when you see them, you need to touch them."
"House & Garden"
What began as an exquisite, handmade work of art is now a lavish gift for lovers everywhere. First created a decade ago in an extremely limited, silk-screened edition by renowned bookmaker Marielle Bancou, "The Color of Love" is one of the most accessible and wide-ranging collections of writings on love ever assembled. On glorious, hand-lettered pages -- each a work of art in itself -- it brings together beloved haiku, sonnets, and odes, as well as many unexpected gems by a stellar lineup of luminaries: from Wang Wei to Solomon, Sophocles to John Donne, Rumi to Shakespeare, James Joyce to Cole Porter.
