And to provide inspiration, there are over 100 words on hand to ensure users can easily choose the right words to say what they want this Valentines.

Depending on each user’s personal creativity and time constraints, suggested layouts, fonts, colours and backgrounds are featured to aid even the most romantically challenged gift giver in producing a visually stunning keepsake. Plus, thanks to the new Easy Book Wizard tool, which automatically fills the book with selected photos, users can complete a book in just minutes.

“Love, especially when it comes to Valentine’s Day, can feel a bit mass market. There’s a real pressure to conform, using preconceived words, familiar old phases alongside traditional gifts; yet being in love is such an individual experience unique to every couple,” commented Mark Chapman, Managing Director at PhotoBox. “The ABC Book of Love is being launched to start a new decade of romance built around openness, individuality and real, ground roots passion. This gift finally gives people the opportunity to say it their way this Valentines!”
