During this week of hearts and flowers, love and chocolate, romance and delight, I have a valentine image for you. This illustration was created for a book published by Peter Pauper Press and titled “Friends Make the Best Presents”. It’s a miniature hardbound book with a dangling red ribbon bookmark and charm attached. The book actually shows more Christmas present images than Valentine’s, but this picture has a heart so is fitting for this week. The text accompanying this full (tiny) page illustration is: “Accept affection with open arms, and give it with an open heart” written by Holly Stevens. I wish I could offer you chocolate affection with my open heart. I hope this eye candy will suffice. Happy Valentine’s week!
