Ephemera Studies

I could not pass up the opportunity to share this striking Image of the Week from ephemerastudies.org. (Sorry, I grew up in NJ, actually quite close to the city featured in this 1926 booklet, so I found it particularly amusing.)

Ephemera Studies is a rather new website, curated by Saul Zalesch of Louisiana Tech University. He posts all kinds of amazing American ephemera. Take a gander at his gallery.
