When this book was first published in 1962 it was not only the first book on the subject, but John Lewis unwittingly invented the term 'Printed Ephemera'. This is virtually a facsimile of that original 1962 edition but with many of the former monochrome subjects now printed in full colour and with a new foreword by the Author. The book surveys the art of the jobbing printer, from Caxton's time to the 1960's, by studying the changing uses of type and letter forms in English and American printing. Handbills, certificates, tickets and trade cards are all illustrated showing the changes in design of type faces and the changing relationships between text and illustration. The book contains a fully illustrated chronological glossary of type and a fully classified index under six headings: General; Artists, Designers and Typographers; Engravers and Lithographers; Printers; Type-founders; Type designers; Type-setters; Type faces. 'Printed Ephemera' is a classic book and the essential work of reference on a subject which has become increasingly popular and collectable. Many Printed Ephemera societies now exist in countries as far apart as the U.S.A., Canada and Australia.
