Over 800 games, playbills, posters, writing blanks and more from the John Johnson Collection of Printed Ephemera.

The John Johnson Collection is one of the largest collections of printed ephemera in the world. It offers a fresh view of British history through primary, uninterpreted printed documents which, produced for short-term use, have survived by chance, including advertisements, handbills, playbills and programmes, menus, greetings cards, posters, postcards. The Collection is strongest in the 18th to early 20th centuries but also contains earlier material.

The digitized material includes writing blanks and board games, and 18th century entertainment ephemera.
