Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is quite fascinating and very well presented. I loved reading about the history of valentines day and the various traditions that have developed over the years. The poetry is beautiful and the cards and photographs are entrancing. A beautiful valentines day book!"
- Annie Rogers. Amazon, US.

"Not only did I learn a tremendous amount of information about Valentine's Day, myths associated with it, flowers, spells, superstitions. I was totally enchanted with the cards and the selected verses. If you buy one Valentine's Day book, this is the one. Incredibly well done."
- Julia Busch, Amazon, US.

"I was pleasantly surprised by the sheer quantity of information I found in this book. I was expecting a simple collection of photos of Victorian valentines, which would have been nice enough. In addition I found information about the history, legends and sayings about Valentine's Day and various flowers and other symbols. Many customs, superstitions, legends and poetry are also collected here."
- Dave, Amazon, US.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved It! February 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I had no idea that the history of Valentine's Day was so interesting and I loved looking at the beautiful old cards and the delightful poems from a bygone age.
It's very obvious that the author put an awful lot of effort into this book - it shows on every page.
If you're a romantic at heart and want to give something special to your valentine, look no further than this book.

VINTAGE VALENTINES: Valentine's Day Cards, Customs, Legends & Poetry
Colorful very informative book about the holiday. Many traditions and poems to accompany the cards.
History of how it's celebrated now and in the past. Meanings of the different flowers and colors even. It's so commercialized now we need to get back to the root and the meaning.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting January 30, 2014
By Doc
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When cleaning out my wife's house we found a small box with valentines she had saved from the early twenties. We both found them interesting. We have since divided among her grandchildren as keepsakes. I picked up this book to see if we could find any in it like what we had. Indeed we did. Book also provides and interesting insight into valentines of the past.
