*Send a Victorian Valentine
The Lilly Library offers a glimpse into the history of Valentine traditions in the online exhibition, "A Flowering of Affection: Victorian Valentine Cards at the Lilly Library." Designed and written by IUB Public Services Librarian Erika Dowell, the exhibition includes a selection of 19th-century Valentine's Day cards, from the sentimental to the comic. "The quality of the cards was as variable as the themes they represented," Erika writes. "Though the dominant theme for Valentines would always be love, comic and even insulting Valentines were also common." Take, for instance, the un-Hallmark-like card that features an illustration of a woman rejecting her suitor in a rather chilly fashion (with a bucket of cold water!). It reads, "Here's a pretty cool reception, At least you'll say there's no deception, It says as plain as it can say, Old fellow you'd best stop away." To view the exhibit online and to send your own Valentine greeting, visit: http://www.indiana.edu/~liblilly/valentines/valentine.html
