This website is based on an exhibition in the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication, University of Reading, from 18 September to 8 December 2017.

The exhibition and this online presentation draw attention to the two main approaches to the collection, study, display, and cataloguing of ephemera,

subjects or themes (e.g. Railways, Temperance, Wind power);
objects or physical artefacts (e.g. Trade cards, Notices, Volvelles).
