Print Materials and Ephemera Pleasing to the Eye

I have been accumulating printed ephemera for decades. Back in the Gutenberg era I doubt anyone would imagine discarding a piece of printing. First, it would be sacrilegious, second, it would be like discarding a old model cell phone (or maybe that’s not such a good example).

Collecting printed materials can lead in two directions. Like the Collyer Brothers retaining printed matter can actually be a life threatening activity– that’s called hoarding. The other is archiving and otherwise preserving the eye appealing riches of the past. It is also hoarding, but archive sounds better than hoard. And if archive is too lofty, just use “collecting.”

These are some examples of the artifacts I’ve showcased in past Daily Heller columns. To me they’re just pleasing to the eye.
