On this special day, the University of TORONTO’s Thomas Fisher Rare Books Library is sharing its new collection of Valentine’s Day cards.
Numbering around 500, the cards date back to the 19th century, and were a gift from David Mason Books this past summer. The collection ranges from elaborate fold-out valentines and ones with moveable parts to cards the size of post-its.
Part of the collection is now on display on the second floor of the Fisher Library. The collection will soon be available online. <PHOTOS – Laura Pedersen>
