About this title

Synopsis:

Many of the greatest photographers of all time have had special fondness for the sight of a kiss. After all, "kissing is the glory of the human species," says Tom Robbins in his introduction to A Kiss Is Just a Kiss. Here, in sixty memorable and delightful photographs by some of the all-time greats, including Kertesz, Doisneau, Cartier-Bresson, Eisenstaedt, and Weegee, is an affectionate and eye-catching celebration of one of life's great pleasures. An exuberant tribute to the most precious gift we can give each other, A Kiss Is Just a Kiss is a book to be treasured by lovers of every persuasion.

Review:

Dogs and babies, old men, lovers, parents and children -- some of the most moving kisses ever recorded on film are here. Tom Robbins writes in the introduction: "No kiss is ever wasted, not even on the winless l0ttery ticket kissed for luck. Kiss trees. Favorite books. Bowling balls. Old Jews sometimes kiss their bread before eating it, and those are good kisses too. The best kisses, though, are those between lovers, because those are the consequential ones, the risky ones, the transformative ones, the ones that call the nymphs and satyrs back to life, the many-layered kisses that we dive into as into a fairy-tale frog pond or the warm whirlpool of our origins."
