Your daily fall down the rabbit hole: The Ephemera Society of America. As it's been a while since its last mention, let's get caught up on new entries. Mid-century library posters! Victorian fashion alphabet! Medical ephemera!

Some issues of The Ephemera Journal are now available online (.pdf format); index of TEJ articles is here.

This reminds me of The Institute Of Official Cheer, which is James Lileks' collection of stuff like this, complete with snarky comments.

Neat! This reminds me that I need to get around to doing something with all those bookmarks I’ve been collecting for decades.

Another great resource, if this is your thing (and oh, is it mine - you should see my guest room), is Plan59.com. It's not updated any more, because the founder went on to become Shorpy.
