I know I promised French Typography this week, but before Valentine's Day slips away, let me share a couple of my own personal treasures from my ephemera collection.
I actually found this beautiful graphic cut this way. Not sure why it was cut, but I have saved it for years. It's very old paper and although I have seen similar images, I have not seen this particular one. The second graphic is a vintage postcard and I actually used this one when I used to sell on Ebay. My store name was Pocket Full of Roses and this was a great image to use for that. Then my last image is a magnificent example of my friend Markell's calligraphy. Would you believe this is her free-hand calligraphy? She did it for some one's wedding a few years back and she was kind enough to share it with a few of her friends. I have also saved this for years and will cherish it always.
