This is a story about love, understanding and tolerating, not to withdraw from what is different. Because the different is us; we're all different and we're all the same. This is love.

LOVE explores issues of tolerance and understanding, and the human ability to love in spite of our differences. It orginally came to life through pages of vibrant colors and uneven widths, cut-outs, peepholes and pages of all shapes and sizes. The New York Times hailed LOVE as “...an off-beat work” and Le Figaro Litteraire celebrated the book as “…a colored graphic poem.”

The brand new digital edition – developed by Argentine storytelling studio NIÑO and now available for purchase on the App Store at a promotional price of $2.99 – offers a fresh and innovative take on the original tale, while maintaining its characteristic simplicity.

From beginning to end, Love, the app creates a magical animated environment, set to an original soundtrack that submerges the reader into the true essence of love. Produced in collaboration with Gian Berto Vanni himself, Love, the app is an opportunity to embark on an unforgettable and emotional journey.

“This is a story about love, understanding and tolerating, not to withdraw from what is different,” says Vanni, now 86 years old. “Because the different is us; we're all different and we're all the same. This is love."

LOVE’s universal message has overwhelmed readers of all generations for half a century. “Poignant”, “touching”, “magical”, “outstanding”, “a real work of art:” these are just a few of the ways readers describe LOVE. And now with Love, the app, children of all ages can enjoy the beauty of LOVE, anytime, anywhere.

This Valentine's Day, share the message of love with Love, the app, the perfect gift for lovers, friends and family.
