While it may be true that our annual celebration of love began as a pagan feast of the flesh in third century Rome, that shouldnt stop anyone from enjoying this charming collection of Valentines Day ephemera. From cards to candy boxes, party favors to ads and more, these classic graphics celebrate the holiday of love during the period of 1900 to the 1960s. Youll find the pun quotient to be delightfully high, exemplified by such gems as a baker exclaiming, Youre surely well bread and a bullfighter vowing Bullieve meI love you! To put the imagery in context, Steven Hellers introductory essay traces the history of Valentines Day.
