A Few of My Favorite Kisses

One of the favorite gifts my husband has ever given me was back when I was taking photography classes. For Valentine's Day, he gave me a beautiful photography book of kisses, A Kiss is Just A Kiss. This book, by Bruce Velick, has 60 of the most famous and delightful photos of kisses of the 20th Century. It even has an introductory essay on the kiss by one of the great wits of our generation, Tom Robbins.

A Kiss is Just a Kiss

 One of the most famous kisses in the world is Gustav Klimt's painting, "The Kiss."
