Love Song is a complexly layered silkscreened artist book with a handsewn cover. The text and rich imagery explore and critique the heterosexual, monogamous, and eroticized underpinnings of the concept of love, starkly juxtaposing romantic sentiments with commodification. Mike Taylor layers pop culture love song crooners such as Justin Bieber and the Supremes with historical figures depicting love, such as Degas, 16th-century religious paintings, and ancient Mesopotamia, exploring the constructed concept of love.
