Like an extended valentine, I Like You, I Love You is an illustrated ode to the feelings of seeking, finding and falling in love. Knowing drawings by artist Carissa Potter pop off each page in striking neon and metallic inks, illustrating all the moments between meeting that special someone ("I like you"), falling for them ("I like-like you") and finding the comfort of devotion ("I love you"). Potter's unique visual voice brings humour, reality and poignancy to this universal human narrative, ensuring that everyone who has known love will recognise themselves in her relatable artwork. Seeming to say it all with a knowing nod, this charming little love letter of a book is an ideal gift for romantics who are crushing, committed or anywhere in between.
Carissa Potter Carlson is an Oakland-based artist whose work reflects her hopeless romanticism. She is a founding member of Colpa Press and founder of the stationery line People I've Loved. This is Carissa's first book.
