Rare Book School (RBS) is a non-profit organization based out of the University of Virginia campus that specializes in the study of the history of books and other printed material. They offer about 40 five-day, non-credit courses throughout the year, located primarily in Charlottesville, but also New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Bloomington, New Haven, and Washington, DC.
In September 2018, RBS is hosting a two-day seminar titled "Exploring Ephemera" which will focus on exploring the history, production methods, typography, circulation, use, and meaning of ephemera produced from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries in America and Britain. This hands-on workshop is designed to pique the interest of collectors, curators, and librarians, but is also open to anyone interested in ephemeral collections.
The seminar will take place Monday, September 10 and Tuesday, September 11 with a group dinner on Sunday, September 9. The locations will be Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library and the University of Delaware Library. Admission to the seminar is $500, and sign up information can be found at their website here.
