They don’t make valentines like they used to. The love notes given in the early 20th century were much more interesting than the cookie-cutter pop culture cards kids hand out today—in fact, some of them were deliciously strange. Take a look back at the past of printed love, thanks to Page of Bats.
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a little cannibalism!
Send a suicidal skunk for when being creepy just isn’t enough…
Let your valentine know that they kill ya with cancer ‘n’ diabetes.
Why wear your heart on your sleeve when you can put it on a platter?
This nightmare kitten expresses his love with casual staking and furballs.
For your submissive Stockholm love kitten.
Hmm. This shitty little Valentine makes me wonder, what is on her toast?
Perhaps he’s dreaming of the little girl with the flies…
The dance of the sardine and leek, is this to say love stinks?
Sweet harassment and intimidation…
Nothing says love like a suggestive banana!
Oh radiator stop, you’re making me sticky and steamy.
That crazy face is driving me batty!
