Ephemera is a very broad category of collecting. It is anything that is transitory and not intended to be retained or preserved. It comes from the Greek and Latin words. Epi means “on” or “for” and hemera means “day”. As a site dedicated to ephemera we mostly keep to paper based ephemera such as postcards, letters, checks or cheques, discontinued banknotes, stamps, bill headings, cancelled stock certificates or other documents. While they are not all technically ephemera, being that they were not meant to be disposable, Webarkive Ephemera also features some items like coins, tokens and memorabilia.
A great piece of ephemera can fit alongside any traditional collection or your entire collection can consist of ephemera. You can pick the type of ephemera that suits your passion.
