Does it have to be original ephemera?

CattyCat

maryellen - I listed examples of stuff that can be used...........Does that help......

So Ephemera is paper with words on it in any form???

monarch
02-26-2008, 06:26 PM
maryellen - This term is hard for me to explain so I copied and pasted something from the internet that might help..............



Why Ephemera?
Why not just Paper Americana or just Old Paper?
It was Maurice Rickards back in 1975 who founded the Ephemera Society in London for the world of ‘paper’ collectors needed some organization to clarify these fabulous documents of history. Maurice was responsible for today’s definition of Ephemera we find in the dictionary. See the Links page for the Ephemera Societies around the world.




The definition of Ephemera comes to us from the Greek ‘epi’ (about) and ‘hemeris’ (day).
Ephemera is pronounced “efem’mera”
The comtempory definition of ephemera is, “something short lived or transitory” especially all types of paper documents both printed or handwritten produced for a specific purpose and normally intended for disposal.
Examples include advertising trade cards similar to the Warner’s Yeast card above which relates to Haley’s Comet. Other examples would include auction broadsides, posters, greeting cards, Rewards of Merit, tickets, invitations, Sheet Music, Candy Boxes, illustrated letter or billheads, The list goes on & on and is endless due to the history of printed and manuscript commercial or entertainment documents.
Durable Ephemera are those Advertising Signs, Souveniers and Tin or Wooden Advertising Boxes, ect.
Paper Ephemera has been well documented in John Lewis’s 1962 book, “Printed Ephemera”, (the 20th century Bible of Ephemera) where John documents Ephemera from as early as the 16th century to present times.

my cards have some vintage ephemera (old book pages, old map scraps, cigar bands, stamps) but i also made color copies of old photos . . . those were something i didn't want to part with permanently! so, i'm glad it's okay it's not ALL original.

(i'll post some thumbnails below . . . i'm gonna send them out today!)

Maryellen, maybe seeing a few cards will help, too?
