Ephemera

Ephemera includes a broad range of everyday paper items intended for short-term use, because of this, so few of these items remain today.Every item of ephemera tells a story. It reveals specific information about what the paper products states, and by how it visually delivers the information. Exploring the past by looking at the old paper products left behind, lets us catch the spirit of the period by seeing the beauty and style of an era gone by.
