EPHEMERA: Trash to Treasure

There is a lot to be said for printed ephemera. I think Jolene Armstrong of the Museum of Ephemera said it best when she described these objects as “all of the beautiful, fragile, temporary things that pass through our fingers, upon which our eyes may rest for a minute or two, vitally important for a singular purpose, then discarded and forgotten.” It seems unfair that these little incidental mementos, never meant to be retained or preserved, must be forgotten. This book serves as a second chance for these transient documents, bringing them out of that dusty box in your attic and back into the light.
