The Object of My Desire: Tokens of Love

Robert Warner is a man about his paper. Known for breathing new life into pages from discarded books and ephemera scraps from a bygone era, this master printer and collage artist was offering his Love Tokens at the New Amsterdam market on the South Street Seaport yesterday, all under a theme dedicated to the sweetness and romance of Valentine's Day.

His bouncy Turners are quite characters, with bodies made of elegant dancers and heads lifted from mugshot photos. (Robert told us that the wonderful John Derian is now selling them in his store! )And then there are badges of love with a heart right in the middle of a background created from vintage ribbons.

May you be the target of much love on this Valentine's Day!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. Love those badges of love, are those bottle caps? Very creative!

  2. Wow nice stuff. I wish if I would have found you before this valentine's day.
