Ephemera Notebook Sets: Vintage Playing Cards

$5.00 $24.00

Wms & Co. co-founder JP Williams, a renowned authority on typography and design, has amassed legendary collections of vintage paper ephemera during his international travels. From brochures and labels to postcards, playing cards, and matchbooks, he unearths vestiges of past civilization and tradition at French flea markets and eccentric German philatelic dealers.

Our series of blank paper Journals and Jotters features cover images from his extraordinary collections and colorful edging. Image prints full bleed front and back on heavyweight ivory uncoated cover stock, inside pages are unprinted pale ivory 80gsm paper, edges a slicked with a splash of color. 

Comes as a set of two tied with ivory cotton cord; perfect for gifting.

Journals are 6.75” x 9.5” and have 128 pages
Jotters are 3.75” x 5.5” and have 96 pages.

These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.

We would be great together -
