The Anniversary Book
by Steve Palin
Illustrated symbols and themes of love, year by year
To have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part...
Any couple who have stayed together happily over the years have much to celebrate.
Steve Palin, author and artist of the bestselling book A Murmuration of Starlings, displays here which gifts, modern or traditional, mark which particular anniversary of ‘staying together’, from the romantic first to the romantic last…
The symbols and themes of love are explained and beautifully illustrated – from flowers, gemstones, practical or luxurious gifts to large or small love tokens. In watercolours and words are the gifts you might like to give on your anniversary, for each passing year.
