This book is new in that it discusses ephemera as an aspect of design history, showing how function, process and period have affected the changing appearance of leaflets, tickets, posters, trade cards and other ephemera. The printing histories of Britain and America are closely woven. Colonial printers and engravers imported British type and equipment and took instruction from the same manuals, a relationship that continued through the first half of the nineteenth century. It was in the years following the Civil War that American and British graphic design and typography began to establish their own identities as developments in colour printing brought an explosion of colourful ephemera. Richly illustrated with letterforms, engravings, drawings and the reproduction in colour of 200 items of ephemera, this is a book for collectors, students, design historians and all those with an interest in the visual arts.

"The Velvet Underground" is an astonishing assembly of rare objects and artworks and the first book of its scale to document the formative years of the band "Time Out" magazine named the greatest New York musicians of all time. From never-before-seen photographs of the band's first live show in New York to Andy Warhol's cover and poster designs, Lou Reed's handwritten music and lyrics, underground press clippings and controversial reviews, flyers, handbills, and posters, the materials here comprise a uniquely comprehensive survey of the first rock group ever to transcend the genre and embrace underground popular culture. Including a conversation recorded especially for the book between founding members Lou Reed and Maureen Tucker, this beautifully illustrated book is the first to present a definitive picture of the band's genesis and development in the extraordinary New York scene of the mid- to late-1960s.
