THE HEART ENDURES January 21 2019, 0 Comments

 

What do we know about the history of the image of love?

In an article about the origins of Valentine's Day, we discover that the image of the heart as an expression of love had a dark and bloody beginning in ancient Roman, was sweetened and romantized during Shakespeare's time, and commercialized in the 1900s.

 

                                               

                                          How did we get from here to here?

I'm creating a series of blogs over the next few weeks which will explore images of the heart as an expression of love in history. The blogs will explore how the graphic heart shape became the ambassador of love.

 

                                   

If you are yearning to express love in graphic form, here are some heart-themed greeting cards, now available on my website.

We know that love will always endure.

Hasta luego amigos.
