The UK Ephemera Society is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015 with specially organised visits to ephemera collections and a banquet where the presentation of the Pepys Medal will be made to the Ephemera Society of America. All this happens during two weeks in May when all the major book and ephemera fairs are taking place.
The Chairman, Valerie Jackson-Harris, would like to extend an invitation to our members to participate in the event.
Dream about these great events!
