The Ephemera Society of America is exceptionally fortunate to have a Valentine's Day ephemera collector as our President Emerita. Nancy Rosin wears many hats, one of which is as Volunteer Cataloger for Department of Drawings and Prints of The Met!

This year, she wrote about her expertise and passion for collecting valentines, particularly cobweb valentines. These 19th-century declarations of romance are typically mechanical or movable, with at least two layers of paper.
