The ABPS Exhibitions and International Committee is pleased to announce that it is inviting exhibits of ephemera to be entered at Spring Stampex which will take place at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London N1 from 14th – 17th February 2018.
‘Ephemera’ covers a vast range of printed and written items designed for a specific purpose – from beer mats to greetings cards and from pamphlets to train tickets. It provides fascinating insights into cultural trends over the centuries and generates much interest among collectors. Building on our experience with Cinderella and postcard exhibits we want to give collectors of ephemera an opportunity to display their material.
Exhibitors of ephemera can enter competitively so that their exhibits will be judged according to the competition rules, or they can enter non-competitively. This will be an experiment and the results will be evaluated afterwards so that we can draw on the experience for planning future events.
For further information and an application form please go to the ABPS website www.abps.org.uk.
We are taking this initiative in association with the Ephemera Society and we look forward to welcoming exhibitors of ephemera to Stampex in February.
