A century ago, the Victorians raised expressions of love to a high art. Every flower, every glance, every jewel spoke the language of the heart. They left behind a dazzling array of valentines and love tokens.
Forget-Me-Nots: A Victorian Book of Love celebrates these sweet sentiments. Each page weaves together paper mementos, precious trinkets and collectibles, fresh flowers, ribbons and lace, and flattering phrases, pleas, and poetry.
