I ain't just soft soapin'

A few Valentines from the Special Collections department of the New York Public Library, via.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Our forefathers outclassed us, so bad.

.... did they meant beetheart??
What exactly do you think hard-soapin' was?

I hope she had a sense of humor...

???? No words.
And, OF COURSE, my favorite:

These are all amazing!! Seriously, though, hard soaping? No clue. And whoever decided to call someone a beetheart failed at produce puns..."We are quite a PEAR" would have been much nicer and cuter...

Last one definitely wins. I hope the "soft soapin'" guy (girl?) wasn't "soft spoken" and expressed his/her bubbling-over love inside the card. :)

I love your blog. I've been creeping here for a couple months. I have a B.S. in Art education and history education and want to eventually do a Masters in archival/museum studies. You are sort of my hero. Do you have any art history book suggestions? Thank you!
