Love is…

The Love is… illustrations were created by New Zealand cartoonist Kim Casali (née Grove) in the 1960s. Originally private drawings that Kim gave to her future husband, they were subsequently published in booklets which Kim sold for $1 each, before being published in newspapers.

In the UK the cartoons appeared in the Daily Mail. Sometimes my dad would come home from work with a copy of the newspaper and I would pounce on it and cut the cartoon out to keep.  The small collection now lives in a drawer in my home.
