Artful, eye-catching, and full of heart, renowned screen printer and artist Rob Ryan's papercuts have graced book covers, album covers, and the fashion collections of Paul Smith. In This Is for You, Ryan takes his unique vision and crafts a book-length valentine that will move the heart and engage the spirit with its charm and artistry. Hand cut and hand painted, each page of Ryan's book can stand alone as a striking art piece, or be read as part of a larger tale of a young man's love and his ultimate triumph over loneliness. Ripe with evocative imagery and a heartfelt text, This Is for You is a powerful combination of poetry, graphic novel, and museum-quality art but at its heart, it's a simple yet timeless tale of love.

A lovely book. I liked that you almost couldn't tell the drawnings and the words apart. Maybe I expected just a little bit more, but I'm not disappointed, because frankly this should deserve 4 stars for the drawnings alone. Read full review
