Description

Symbols are a universal language in which men and women have expressed the same dreams, aspirations and emotions for many centuries. Drawing on details of Western folklore and the ancient wisdom of the East, this series celebrates this treasure house of symbolism in a series of miniature books. This book deals with love symbols. It contains a wealth of lovers' lore, including such themes as Cupid, Venus, Eros and Aphrodite; the language of flowers and love tokens; emblems of passion, seduction and constancy; aphrodisiacs and fertility; and the romantic symbolism of the moon and the stars. Illustrations capture the aspects of both earthly and other-worldly loves, with a wealth of detail from myth, folk belief and custom.show more
