Suzi Malin, the author of Love at First Sight, is a portrait painter in London; she is a colleague of Freud’s grandson Lucien. (Lucien Freud’s latest show [in New York through May 2004], by the way, featured scabrous and florid humans and sleek animals.) This is a book of astonishing photos of mostly beautiful and all famous people in pair bondings. It purports to demonstrate the ways we fall in love visually with our lover’s face. The first way, called "harmonism," involves shared facial proportions—"the relative distances between the forehead and bridge of nose, base of nose and mouth, and mouth and chin" (p. 10). An example given is Charles and Diana. The second way is "echoism," an echoed shape of the upper eyelid line, the upper lip line, and the sweep of the eyebrow. Yoko and John had echoism, as do Brad and Jennifer; Marilyn had harmonism with Robert but both echoism and harmonism, and probably a stronger bond, with Jack. In addition to these two ways, which one might suggest are narcissistic mechanisms because they involve loving aspects of one’s own image, Malin terms a third way "prima copulism"—falling in love with one’s first bond: the mother or nanny for men and the father or other close male relative for women. Leonardo and Mona, Charles and Camilla, and John Jr. and Carolyn are examples. Liz resembles Dick’s much older sister Cecilia, who brought him up when his mother died when he was 2. Strong love attraction occurs when all three ways of falling in love at first sight are present, as in Bill and Monica and Elton and David.
