Two Vintage Valentines Postcard from John Winch and Jason Freixas

Valentine Greeting

This is a novelty booklet postcard that features two children riding in a car with the cupid police about to shoot them with his bow and arrow of love.  The pages of the card open up and you read them like a book.  The inside pages read:

To My Valentine

If you were me and I were you,
You'd press this missive to your breast,
But as I'm I, and you are you
I fear you'll love the nearest, best.

Design publisher: John Winsch 1914
Artist: Jason Freixas

Gorgeous! I'm sure these were a little pricey back in the day.
