The Flirtation Guide is another tribute to the forbidden-love obsessed Victorians. Not only were the first postage stamps created under the rule of Queen Victoria, they came with their own secret love code: the careful placement of a stamp on an envelope carried a message of its own. Upside down on the corner? "I love you." On right hand corner at a right angle? "Do you love me?" This card is a cute guide to what each of these positions meant to them...a thoughtful card for any antique lover in your life. Folded card and envelope. Blank interior. 4.25" x 5.5". Red card and envelope.

About the maker: Open Sea is a Brooklyn creative studio that specializes in fine stationery and paper goods. They create paper goods that tell a story, not just with words and phrases, but with symbols, talismans, long lost traditions, and creatures from the natural world. They are inspired by the occult, the eccentricities of the Victorian era, naturalist prints, and treasures of the plant and animal kingdom. Each piece is meticulously designed with purpose and intention, and they pride themselves in their attention to the very small details. The company was established in 2015 by Melissa Constandse, named for the salty, crystal-clear blue shores of her home in the Yucatan Peninsula.
