Love Doodles

H.G. Wells second marriage was unconventional, but I think most things that writers did with their hearts in the 1890s were unconventional. What stands out about this one is that Wells married Amy Catherine Robbins, "Jane," in 1895; the couple had a turbulent, but fun and open marriage until her death in 1927.

Ok, maybe it wasn't fun, but The Picshuas of H.G. Wells: A Burlesque Diary make it difficult to imagine it was all that terrible, when he communicated with her so frequently through cartoons. I'm collecting some of them here for your enjoyment.
