From the late 19th century through to our own day, various companies
have produced pop-up Valentines to be sent by friends, families
and lovers to express their affection. The three-dimensional character
of these cards suggests that that affection envelops the whole
of one's life, but pop-ups have a playful quality as well.
These QuickTime 3D images give you an opportunity to see the dynamic
quality of pop-up valentines and other valentine greetings and
objects and make you discover how this way of viewing museum objects
adds to their charm.
