These two receipts are over 100 years old and are the epitome of what we like about old Ephemera pieces. They were not created to be anything but a temporary piece of paper and receipt of funds, but what we like about pieces like this is that it shows so much about what life was like at a certain point of time in our Country's past.
The engraving on these receipts were done at a time when they really used metal plates and did deep engraving, and you can feel the grooves in the paper too. They are like mini pieces of art, especially for someone who likes graphic design and fontography.
Also, we love to see beautiful penmanship, such as these, when people wrote their checks and letters with ink fountain pens.
We use items such as this for all sorts of craft projects. Color copy them and use them as backgrounds for photos, collages, or hand-made stationery. Have them laminated and use them as page markers! Or just enjoy having a tiny piece of Americana for yourself.
