Lips Touch: Three Times

Lips Touch: Three TimesLips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor

First off: Illustrations. Beautiful. Marvelous. Incredible. They’re two-tone, and they are just lovely. There’s about 5 or 6 pages of illustrations prefacing each of the three short stories, and the illustrations all tell a sort of short story in themselves.

For instance, the first short story is based on the poem “The Goblin Market,” by Christina Rossetti. While Taylor references this background in the story proper and even outlines it a little, she just outlines it as needed for the backstory. What’s beautiful is that the prefacing illustrations tell the story of the poem in and of themselves, without words but with all the emotion. It’s beautiful.

Each story is similarly two-layered, a feast both visually and literally. It’s a great book and I fully recommend it to anyone.
