From the bodice-busting covers of Harlequin romances to personal ads to wedding cake toppers, romantic subjects have thrived in the fertile soil of American modern-age media and pop culture. Brought to Abrams by the creators of the successful Happy Kitty Bunny Pony: A Saccharine Mouthful of Super Cute, Love Sick celebrates the many facets of love: dating, marriage, heartbreak, sex, and strange, thin men in shorts with funny socks!

Containing more than 200 images from the print and advertising archives of Charles S. Anderson Design Company in combination with a sharply hilarious text by Michael J. Nelson, the main writer and host of the legendary Mystery Science Theater 3000, Love Sick is a steamy, kitsch, and campy testament to America's love of LOVE. So grab a cozy spot by the fire, snuggle up with the one you love, and see if either of you recognizes yourself in Love Sick.
