”Kissing — that simple act of romance — is a hard thing to explain. But Barbara Levine and Paige Ramey of Project B, a group ’dedicated to collecting and preserving vintage vernacular photography,‘ are trying.“
— New York Times
Steven Heller of Print Magazine calls People Kissing ”truly charming in so many loving, heartfelt and witty ways“ and "the perfect gift to share with a lover, love-e or casual pal.
Love is in the air as Barbara Levine and Paige Ramey take on humankind's oldest pastime: kissing. In racy candids, humorous vintage postcards, and snapshots taken on the sly, couples from the Victorian era through the Swinging Sixties smooch, canoodle, neck, and spoon. The collected photographs are sweet, sincere, and saucy, occasionally awkward, and always intriguing: Who took these photos? And what lay in store for these amorous couples after the shutter clicked—true love or just a passing fancy? People Kissing is the perfect gift to share with a sweetheart any day you feel like making a public display of affection.
