Yves Saint Laurent - Love Posters

Though they are missives of love, Yves Saint Laurent’s Love Cards, which the designer created and sent for thirty years, from 1970 to 2000, weren’t valentines at all but rather cartes de voeux—cards sent to welcome the New Year. Colorful and boldly graphic, these hand-crafted collages were often inspired by objects near and dear to his heart: his bulldog Moujik, for instance, and the sun and palm trees of his native Algeria. The original art works can be viewed at the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh. The Art Deco house once belonged to Moroccan artist Jaques Majorelle and Yves saint Laurent lived their a while with his partner.
