Ephemera Madness

The other day I stumbled upon this site and was instantly delighted. Ephemera and other everyday things around us are designed and when collected together provide rich insight into our daily life. They are a snapshot of our culture during a certain space of time.

Looking through the library of 45 labels took me back to when I was in junior high and collected 45's. I never really noticed the labels, but some of them were very cool.

Enjoy.
