Should you need inspiration to communicate your love for someone this Valentine's Day, you can — as always — turn to literature.

The New York Times Book Review was packed with ads for holiday cards in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, according to the current staffers.

So they couldn't help finding — and sharing — the actual cards in the archives.

Given their era of origin, you can rest assured that these vintage Valentine's Day cards are perfectly safe for polite company, as long as no one violently objects to puns.

Playwright Arthur Miller's love letters to Marilyn Monroe, however? We're slapping a blush warning on them, so share with caution.
