12 Hand-Written Love Letters From Famous People, From Henry VIII To Michael Jordan

Remember the days before people needed a Hallmark card to say "I love you?" Yeah, we don’t either. So as an antidote to what commercialization has rendered the least romantic day of the year we’ve decided to post the most romantic thing we can think of: a selection of hand-written love letters.

All the missives above come from Letters of Note, editor Shaun Usher’s excellent blog of “fascinating letters, postcards, telegrams, faxes, and memos.” We raided Usher’s archives to find all sorts of mushy talk straight from the pen of historically significant people, from teen-aged Michael Jordan’s hangdog apology to his high-school girlfriend to King Henry VIII’s tenacious pursuit of Anne Boleyn (while he was still married to Catherine of Aragon) to Marlon Brando’s predictably creepy romantic overtures to a stewardess.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
