Just a quick reminder: the first Ephemera Fair of 2011 is just a couple of weeks away. It takes place on Sunday 6 February at the Doubletree Hotel, 92 Southampton Row, London WC1B 4BH, from 11am to 4pm.
(For those of you who’ve not been to, or haven’t heard of the Ephemera Fairs, they’re sales of printed ephemera. So that’s stuff like “leaflets, handbills, tickets, trade cards, programmes and playbills, printed tins and packaging, advertising inserts, posters, newspapers” and much more. In the words of the Ephemera Society’s founder, Maurice Rickards, “the minor transient documents of everyday life”. And there’s generally something brilliant to be found.)
