It's Valentine's Day, isn't it? And do you know who really loved Valentine's Day? The Victorians. And, sure, it seems like their lives were all puppies and pies and pansies, but they had their fair share of problems. I mean, problems beyond having cocaine in their soda and infrequent bathing and child labor and sooty, sooty filth. I'm talking about love problems.
So, in the tradition of December's rejected Christmas card designs and in homage to the delightful imagery of yesteryear, I thought I'd offer up a treasury of alternative Victorian Valentines, just in time for the big day.
Please feel free to print these little beauties on the high-quality cardstock of your choice and....you know....good luck with all that.
Happy Valentine's Day!
