Part of our day to day experiences is the mass of promotional material fighting for our attention, so much so that often we become oblivious to its existence. There is nothing new in this and much of it will, in time, become the ephemera of our age, reflecting the tastes and styles of the times we live in. We all know when something was produced in the 30’s, 50’s or 60’s just by the use of typography or illustrative style and when done well, these simple everyday items of promotional material can become objects of beauty in their own right. I have featured here a small collection of bookmarks which I think illustrate this point and speak for themselves.
