// A STORY ABOUT LOVE
Love, the app brings back the illustrated masterpiece and timeless classic LOVE, first published in 1964 by italian artist Gian Berto Vanni. Reviewed by the New York Times as “an off-beat work", LOVE enticed thousands of readers all over the world.
Because of its universal theme, LOVE is now as powerful as ever. A story that recaptures our ability as humans to love, regardless of our differences.
// BEHIND THE APP
Developed in collaboration between NIÑO - a boutique storytelling studio based on Argentina - and Gian Berto Vanni himself, Love, the app was originally imagined and carefully put together in order to maintain the sensibility and uniqueness of the original printed book. Enriched adding music, animations and interactive tools, Love, the app deepens the reader experience and attracts new generations.
