About the Author:

Bob Brenner, of Princeton, Wisconsin, is a leading authority on the traditions of Christmas and other holidays. He lectures and curates major holiday exhibits for the Smithsonian and other museums.

From Library Journal:

Brenner, an author and curator specializing in the study of holiday customs, here looks at valentines produced in America in the 20th century. In chapters arranged by decade, the text details the history and stylistic changes of valentine production, with hundreds of illustrations exhibiting the romance and charm of the cards. Collectors will value the price guides and the descriptions of the production techniques and the various formats. The photographs also act as identification guides for various manufacturers and artists. This comprehensive social history is recommended as a unique guide for serious collectors of ephemera and as a popular history for all who love to give and get valentines.?Judith Yankeilun Lind, Roseland Free P.L., N.J.
