Overview

First published in The Los Angeles Times in 1970, Love Is... began as Kim Casali's private love notes to her husband but grew into a worldwide sensation, appearing in newspapers in more than 50 countries and becoming in the process an icon of the 1970s.

This new Love Is... book is part of a major relaunch of the unforgettable brand, which is already back in successful T-shirt and slipper lines. The cartoons have nostalgic and kitsch appeal for baby boomers, while younger generations, fascinated by '70s pop culture, will also be won over by Casali's simple truths about relationships. In addition to 365 of the most memorable Love Is... cartoons, the book contains the romantic story behind the phenomenon, the first drawing ever published, and an introduction by Kim Casali's son. With a satin cover featuring a die-cut heart, this charming volume makes a foolproof Valentine's Day gift.

Author Bio: Kim Casali, a New Zealand native, began making drawings for her husband-to-be in California in 1967. The Los Angeles Times picked up the drawings for publication, and "Love is..." became a syndicated cartoon in 1970. It went on to appear in newspapers in 50 countries.

    Fantastic Book!

    Well, first thing, the book arrived on time in perfect condition. No complaints. I bought this book for my mother on mother's day. She told me that she's collected these comics since she was a young kid and I thought that a book with them all put together sounded like a good idea. Well it was! She loved it and I would recommend this book to anyone. For anyone who doesn't know it's a small little booklet with a picture on each page of a nude prepubescent couple with a sweet little saying always starting with "Love is..." And no, it's not creepy. They don't do anything sexual.

    Love is...

    I love this book. The Love is comics are my all time favorite things. I have every single one saved and put away. When sad, just look at love is comics and they will bring a smile to your face. I recommend this book to anyone in love or anyone who wishes to be in love...if it's not a love is comic it's not real!

    A great gift for the one you love

    The pictures in this book relay perfectly what my ideas of love are. I recommend this book to any couple who may have 'trouble' explaining what they want in a relationship.
