i think that many of us can relate to Soppy, a set of illustrations by Philippa Rice about the everyday minutiae within a relationship that actually mean so much. based on her relationship with illustrator Luke Pearson, she’s been sharing them on her blog since 2013 and they are now available as 112 page book.
Soppy is the illustrated love story of author Philippa Rice and her real-life boyfriend. True love isn’t always about the big romantic gestures. Sometimes it’s about sympathizing with someone whose tea has gone cold or reading together and sharing a quilt. When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love.
