vintage Valentine's gift

Maybe this is not the Valentine's Day gift you were
waiting for but believe me, it comes straight from
my heart as well as from the archival strongroom
in which I keep my treasures. Gorgeous illustrations
by celebrated Italian master Lorenzo Mattotti exclusively
published almost thirty years ago by long since 
gone 'Vanity' bimonthly magazine.

His unique artistry makes me fall into a swoon whenever
I see one of his works: thankfully he's currently working 
on a new book collecting his fashion illustrations, you 
can get a sneak preview of them on his fb page.
Happy Valentine's Day!
