This is a Victoria's Secret Images of Love Volume 2 Hardcover Book with sleeve!
This second anthology of love by Victoria's Secret is a collection of pieces of verse and prose matched with images of equal beauty and romance. The result is another treasury of words and pictures on the theme of love's infinite variety. Every lover will recognize the tremulous uncertainties of first love depicted here, the simple longing expressed anonymously in a Victorian valentine, the glow of happiness felt by Elizabeth Bennett in the knowledge of her love, and Tess of the d'Urbervilles' profound and endless joy. No woman can ever have received more tender expressions of love than Fanny Brawne from John Keats, or more seductive persuasion than Teresa Guiccioli from Lord Byron; and no man can ever have received a more heartfelt and moving declaration of devotion than Anne Bradstreet's husband of three centuries ago. All the pieces in these pages have been paired-- whether bashful confessions or urgent pleas, ecstatic celebrations or poignant adieus-- with images that not only reflect them in mood and content, but also add a further dimension to the intensity and beauty of the words. The book is lightly scented and comes in a lovely box.
