5 gorgeous illustrations celebrating the art of love

A group of popular illustrators from around the globe have come together to create How to Woo, a special digital handbook from Scrawl Magazine (opens in new tab) featuring the 'dos and don'ts of the art of courtship'.

Based on creative interpretations of various romantic and humorous gestures such as writing a love letter, getting over a broken heart and how to cry, How to Woo (opens in new tab) is debuting in the App Store just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The digital book is packed with interactive features that showcase the creativity of the artists – including Alon Braier (opens in new tab), Geran Knol (opens in new tab), Michael Arnold (opens in new tab), Studio Takeuma (opens in new tab) and Pixin (opens in new tab).

"Valentine’s Day is not just about sweet chocolates and pretty roses, it is also about love letters that were lost in the mail, awkward dates and much more," explains Michael Golan, designer and co-founder of Scrawl Magazine. "Our 7th issue is an ode to these sweet and sour sentiments, in the form of a mock 'helpful' handbook.”
