Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0863277926, Hardcover)Few gestures convey our feelings as magically as a kiss-one heartfelt kiss is equal to 1000 words. The ancient Greeks described the kiss "as the key to paradise," able to unlock the heart's deepest desires. Paradise lay beyond the lips of a lover and was an unspoken promise of adoration. In perfect time for Valentine's Day De-Ann Black with the help of beautiful, full color and original artwork uncovers the history and mystery of the art of kissing.
Did you know that the shape of your lips reveal much about your hidden personality? Pouting lips give the impression of raw sensuality but may hide a sensitive soul. Slender shaped lips belong to those with a secretly sensual personality An expressive lower lip shows a deeply loving heart and often belongs to creative dreamers
The importance of the lips among the ancient Celts, their ancestors and descendants is revealed. For instance, Ancient Celtic warriors painted their lips with dye because they believed each breath they took contained the essence of life. It was considered vital to protect the mouth from harm and the rich red color was thought to defend the lips and cast fear into the hearts of the enemy.
Why do we blow kisses? Why do we attempt to steal one? The answers to these questions and a myriad of others can be found in the realms of Celtic courtship rituals and between the cover of this little gem.
