I’ve always been fascinated with lips. Next to eyes, they are the first things I look at when I am meeting and talking with people. Whether male or female, a nice set of lips is a huge turn on. I believe that lips were put on our bodies for one reason only: Kissing. I love kissing, who doesn’t? To me, a kiss tells it all about a person. If you can’t kiss right, something isn’t right inside. Period, end of story.
Today, Power House books has released a beautiful book by Alice Harris, the acclaimed, best-selling author of The White T, The Blue Jean, and The Wedding Album that is all about kissing. Blow Me a Kiss is a stunning collection of photographs by some of the world’s most groundbreaking artists and photographers exploring our fascination with lips—”the elegant simplicity of a lip print, the luscious pout of supermodel’s, even lipstick’s power to transform drab into fab.”
Curated by Alice Harris, the book includes work from over the past 100 years including the work of Francesco Scavullo, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Man Ray, Elliot Erwitt and many more that have graced publications such as Vogue, LIFE and Harper’s Bazaar as well as adorned album covers, movie posters, and appeared in museums across the globe.
I love a pictorial of imagery that communicates one direct thought or feeling and this book certainly does that. Order it today or pick it up at your local bookstore when you have the chance. It’s a good one.
