A love letter

 I was checking some illustrated letters on the Internet when I came across something called the Cuban letters. During the Cuban crisis, a burlesque dancer was writing some graphic letters to JFK in the White House. JFK is known for his philandering and this dancer's name was 'Blaze' and here is one of those letters. Imagine getting a letter like this!
 Before I set out to visit Charleston this last May I did this page and after looking at it for a while, I thought to myself 'would it be fun if this was like 100 pages and there are more illustrations and writing. This was what I've been doing the past few weeks and I'm almost finishing the project.
 My dining table is just inundated with all my work.
