I've wanted to start a blog for a long time, but I've had cold feet. On this chilly, rainy Spring morning, I resolved to be brave and get on with it!
I've garnered a wonderful collection of ephemera over the years, and I hope this will be a good way to share some of my collection with collage and mixed media artists and other ephemera fans.
Today's free ephemera download is an ad from an early edition of The Cosmopolitan, founded in 1886. The Cosmopolitan offered one-year subscriptions for $1.00. I'll share more ads from this vintage treasure in future posts.
Below are three of my favorite books about using vintage ephemera in art projects. All of these books are full of eye candy and inspiring ideas.
