For Relationships Not Suited to Hallmark Sentiments
Valentine sentiments dont have to be cloying, judging from a new gift book, Valentines: Vintage Holiday Graphics (Taschen, $9.99), edited by Jim Heimann. Indeed, through the years some of the most notable cards (a sampling is above) have had an edge -- even, to modern eyes, a slightly twisted quality. Mr. Heimann, a writer, editor and collector in Los Angeles, scoured the Rose Bowl Flea Market and Swap Meet in Pasadena, Calif., for the cards. Blatantly cute ones, or what he calls bottom feeders, sell for about $1, he said, while the satiric ones with monkeys and little old maids -- the ones you dont want to get if youre a diehard romantic -- will hover around $30. Victorian die-cut valentines sell for up to $100. But inexpensive vintage cards are still fairly easy to find. In New York, on Sundays, Geno Sartori sells early 20th-century valentines (from $6.50) at booth T8 of the Green Flea Market at Columbus Avenue and West 77th Street; he can also be reached by phone: (212) 691-9776..
