From the Ephemera Fair

A good haul from Sunday’s Ephemera Society Fair:

Not the best photo sorry, but our star buys were the 1920s Ray Cycles poster that looks bang up-to-date (reminds me of Telegramme’s work) and the handsome pigeon portraits. The ‘Ken Kat’ sweet potato crate label will be framed up in our kitchen.

I scanned some bits and bobs below so you can really see the details.

A plow factory brochure – can you imagine something so beautiful made for something so banal nowadays?

I love the superfluous copy writing on these. We have similar labels framed up in our bathroom.
