With a Thousand Kisses scans the centuries for the cr me de la cr me of poetic and illustrated eroticism, and the result is a beautifully designed gift book that will bring many smiles and perhaps a few blushes to its readers. Among the poets in the collection are John Donne, Lord Rochester, Browning, Baudelaire, D. H. Lawrence, Yeats, e.e. cummings, Pablo Neruda, and many more. There is even a new and unpublished poem from Louis de Berni res, novelist and poet, and the author of Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Illustrations come from from Rodin, Boucher, Titian, Correggio, Fragonard, Courbet, Rodin, Toulouse Lautrec ... to name but a few.
