Title

Valentine Greetings

Description

[Image: Centered on this vertical postcard is a cherubic girl wearing a bowler hat with a hat-pin decorated with a red heart. She is hoisting a picket sign that reads: VOTES FOR WOMEN cupid & love. The word women appears to be scratched out with one beige line and the words "cupid & love" are in cursive and red and appear to be hand-written. This would make the picket sign read: "Votes for cupid & love." The cherubs face is eerily adult-like, as is her nude body. There is a nearly inpercebtable nipple on a her left breast and the calves, ankles, and feet appear very adultized. The cherub is winged and carrying a large, red, clasp-style handbag with a gold "C". This image is framed inside a large red heart. Centered beneath the image is the title "Valentine Greetings" in blue. This is followed by a small poem: NO VOTES FOR CUPID, ....
WITH HIS DARTS
HE WORKS HIS LITTLE GAME
OF "HEARTS"
The words CUPID, DARTS, AND HEARTS ARE ALL BOLD AND RED.] Print, color, 14x9 cm, cream cardstock.
