this postcard, found on ebay, is a fine example of bauhaus-era typography. however most of my ephemera is usually found at paper fairs. i attend ephemera fairs whenever i can. early in our relationship, my wife would attend these with me. over the years she has grown bored with these fairs and possibly with me, too. to find the real jewels requires a desire and perseverance that many people don’t possess. dealers from all over come to these fairs. there are dozens upon dozens of categories of specialization. there are postcard dealers, too; a whole breed unto themselves. maybe you saw the exhibition of walker evans’ postcard collection at the moma. i missed it. I usually start with the miscellaneous category. i rarely choose to mention my interests. once you find something you like and ask the price, the dealers will generally pull out other items they think you might like. every dealer has a story to tell and, if you have the patience, it’s usually worth listening. in this same vein, i hope you find my posts worth reading. thank you.
