ROMANTIC Duncan Saunders ponders words of love ahead of workshops to create the perfect Valentine’s card.

The 23-year-old Oxford Castle tour guide will use printing presses from the Bodleian Library at Oxford’s Story Museum.

He is also an intern at the Pembroke Street museum and is considering using Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 for girlfriend Emma Yandle, 23. It includes the lines: “Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? / Thou art more lovely and more temperate.”

He said: “She loves literature. The cards are beautiful and an amazing way to communicate your feelings.”

Other romantic souls can go to two £40 sessions on January 28 and February 4 from 6pm to 8.30pm. Call 01865 790050.
