5 Title Page Ephemera
Today we have a gorgeous collection of Title Page Ephemera! Included below are birds, bird eggs, and even a hard to see tiny leopard that reminds me of the old ‘find the hidden object’ section of newspapers. Another ancient illustration displays pretty gold, silver, and red colored ornamental shapes of illuminated manuscript. They are all splendid vintage graphics that are wonderful ephemera pieces for your Collage or Mixed Media Artwork! Any of these would make fantastic cover art for your Junk Journal projects as well.
Vintage Title Page Ephemera
Here is the latest addition to this collection. Shown above is an old page from the front of a book. The words Presented To …are on the page, along with some blank spaces to write in the name of the person that is the recipient of the gift!
This is an Ornate Vintage Book Title Page! It is a fine example of illuminated manuscript. Shown above is a marvelous fancy title page from The Grammar of Ornament book, Circa 1868. I’ve been trying to get my hands on a copy of this book for years; it’s quite a pricey book. This is truly a unique graphic. I finally lucked out and found one that had fallen apart and the price was much more reasonable!

Featured above is the cover to an 1870’s Natural History Booklet! I think that the whole thing is just so charming. I love the Typography used here, and of course the Engraved Nest with Eggs! The title reads, “Nests and Eggs of Familiar Birds.” Old nature-themed illustrations like this one are drawn with such detail and precision I think. So impressive!
