Series on Love: Valentine's Day
This month we continue our series on Love by celebrating the art of letter writing, just in time for Valentine's Day.

On the 14th of February we exchange Valentine's cards, often in a rather ritualistic and unimaginative way. These days we only very rarely send letters to each other, and even rarer are the things called "love letters".

This selection of images celebrates the writing, sending and receiving of love letters. May this wonderful way of communicating with our beloved not die out completely!
