Antique Christmas cards exhibit an era of elegant graphic design

Lee said until she mounted an exhibit of Victorian Valentine's cards at the library in January 2012, "nobody got to enjoy them but me. Now I'd like to get my cards out more."

Admiring her cards' intricate designs and reading senders' sentiments inscribed in flowing script transports Lee back to another era, she said.

"I think I'm living in the wrong time," she said. " I think the story of Victoria and Albert is just so wonderful. It's a wonderful love story. It's always been a time period that's dear to my heart."

The exhibit, which runs through December, includes Victorian dolls and other antiques to complement Lee's cards.

Lee will visit Dec. 5 to chat about her collection and share Christmas cookies.
