A Presentation by Dick Sheaff at Ephemera/33 - "An Overview of 19th Century Printing"
The Ephemera Society of America’s 33rd conference explored the multi-faceted relationships between Art and Ephemera. An item of ephemera may be collected and studied primarily for its beauty and design rather than for its content. For example, an entire field of study is devoted to the book as a work of art: a book might be artistic in the sense that it is “a holder of images, a vehicle for symbols, a terrain for poetry” yet have no words or images; have the appearance of a book, but be conceived as a work of art. Similarly, a piece of functional ephemera might be regarded as art for its typography or design.
