Drawn Together: Illustrated True Love Stories (Hardcover)
Experience the beauty of romance in this charmingly illustrated book showcasing true stories of true love, in all its magnificence and mess.
From The New Yorker contributor and @drawingolive Instagrammer Olivia de Recat comes a heartwarming look at love, in its many forms. Drawing on interviews with "the best couples she knows"—young and old, from all walks of life—de Recat explores the question: what makes love work? But instead of trying to solve the puzzle of all relationships, ever, Drawn Together simply reflects the world back to itself, with stories of love and belonging, from pet names, to first date anxieties, to the enduring tales of life-long partnership.
Throughout, Olivia gracefully weaves in her own experiences, exploring how sometimes finding love can mean learning to embrace yourself. A perfect gift for a partner, a couple celebrating an anniversary, or a friend who just went through a break up, Drawn Together is a hopeful, humorous, entertaining book that will inspire even the shiest among us to take a chance on love.
