Time to start saving up a few pennies…


The next Ephemera Society Fair is coming up in a few weeks, with stacks of printed matter to spend your hard earned on.

We figured it would be a great time to have a bit of a We Made This Christmas get together, so after the fair we'll be going on to a pub for a few drinks, and it would be great if you could join us. It's a chance to meet up with other design folks, and to have a nosy at the bits and pieces they've laid their hands on during the morning.

The fair is on Sunday 2 December, and it's a 'Special Fair' which means it's a bit bigger than the regular ones. It's being held at the Holiday Inn, on Coram Street, near Russell Square, from 11 until 5.

We're going to get along there for round midday, and we'll heading on afterwards, say round 1pm, to The Swan, which is just down the street at 7 Cosmo Place. Here's the streetmap link.


So if you feel like coming along, drop Alistair a mail; say hello at the fair; or just meet us at the pub afterwards. We'll stick up a sign or something so you know who we are.

And if you want a look at the sort of stuff on offer at the fair, just take a look at Alistair's Flickr set.
