ASTRID’S RECIPE FOR SLEEP




1. a full belly
2. her “woof woof”
3. her sleep sack (a well worn hand-me-down. Made by hand. I think she is the fifth child to sleep in it.)
4. 500 miles (unfortunately it’s with my singing)

SHEAFF EPHEMERA









Holy wow. A dizzying amount of incredible printed ephemera at Sheaff Ephemera

I have always found myself keenly interested in a seemingly endless list of vintage things, especially ephemera: stamps, postal history, trade cards, billheads, trade cards, broadsides, cartes-de-visite, stereo views, tickets, engravings, chromolithographs, early American glass, Irish blown three-mold glass, patent medicine bottles, flasks, almanacs, postcards, marbled paper, early letterpress printing, typography, books, African art, record album covers, airbrushed restaurant china, Micronesian tapa cloth . . . . I could go on and on, but you get the idea. I’ve long thought that what I’d most like to do in life, in some better world, would be to put out an ongoing series of high-quality, small publications about such things. As a graphic and publication designer with all the appropriate software, one would think I’d be in a fine position to do just that.

But it ain’t that easy. Especially in today’s publishing and economic environment, the idea of putting out a lot of ink-on-paper is just not practical. Or even sane. Eventually I realized that what I can do—and fairly easily—is scan the images, write the words and then simply post them online. I get it out of my system, and the material gets out there in front of the eyes of anyone who may be interested. Win win. So, here goes . . .
