300,000 Kisses: Signed Edition with Tote Bag
A book in love with love: two powerhouse creatives come together for a fruitful collaboration in the stunning 300,000 Kisses—a collection of queer love stories from Ancient Greece and Rome, introduced by award-winning poet and critic Seán Hewitt, and dynamically illustrated by Luke Edward Hall. A sumptuous celebration of love from a world with different rules, these tales of legends, deities, sex workers and more are thrilling, complicated, and empowering.

Steeped in honey, Juventius, your golden eyes, and as sweet too when I press my lips to them - three hundred thousand kisses is not close to enough. For centuries, evidence of queer love in the ancient world was ignored or suppressed. Even today, only a few, famous narratives are widely known - yet there's a rich literary tradition of Greek and Roman love that extends far beyond this handful of stories. Here, the poet Seán Hewitt and painter Luke Edward Hall collect together, for the first time, forty of the most exhilarating queer tales in the classical canon and bring them newly to life. A ground-breaking anthology that changes the way we see the ancient world - and invites us to reflect on the puritanism of our own - 300,000 Kisses is a riotous celebration of desire in all its forms.
