There’s nothing wrong with getting your significant other a valentine’s card with hearts, roses, or a pair of swans, but eclectic artist Ben Kling has a series of valentine’s cards for people who want something a bit funnier and more unique.
The illustrator, musician, writer, animator and artist has created a collection of valentine’s cards with cute little puns featuring famous writers, philosophers, thinkers… and dictators. You can get Hitler to ask your valentine to “be mein” or propose a more chaste relationship with the help of Plato.
And if these historical figures don’t quite cut it, he also has series based on drugs and farm equipment. If your valentine (or valentine-to-be) loves humor, Kling’s cards are a good bet. This year is the first year that he’s been able to offer them for sale in time for valentine’s day.
