Le baiser de mes vœux I Paul Fleming I esperluète & éditions

"Le baiser de mes vœux, poème de Paul Fleming, fut écrit au XVIIe siècle. Quatre cents ans plus tard, une jeune illustratrice allemande se plaît à l’illustrer.
A la fois manuel du « bien embrasser » et petit traité pour amoureux, cette invitation à la tendresse ne parle que d’une chose: le baiser. Que l’on donne, que l’on reçoit, que l’on dérobe...
A l’usage de tous les amoureux, ce livre est un petit concentré de conseils qui ne vieillissent jamais. Christina Cohen-Cossen l’a illustré de bois gravés. Déclinant une palette de quatre couleurs, elle varie le thème sans jamais le répéter, avec justesse et virtuosité."
