A place to share photos and discuss advertising cookbooks. My favorites are from the 1920s-1950s. I enjoy discussing how cooking techniques and recipes change and insights into household management, family structure & social norms.See More
My interest in ephemera comes from a long-standing interest in printing, advertising, typography and photography. I learned to set type when I was 14 years old and can still wield a composing stick more than 50 years later. Beginning as a dealer in old magazine ads in 1975, I expanded my interests to used and rare books, opening a bricks-&-mortar store in Hartford CT in 1983, which, after three moves, remains open in that city.. When ebaY arrived in the late 1990s, we took the plunge and have sold many thousands of items of ephemera in the 13 years on that site. Parallel to our ebaY store, which features about a third of our overall inventory on a rotating 30-day basis, our web site www.thejumpingfrog.com offers for sale some 75,000 items of ephemera in searchable categories. As an adjunct, we sell our series of CD-ROMs titled the Archives of Advertising, [www.archivesofadvertising.com] each of which collects, organizes and analyzes magazine ads for cars, trucks, food, fashion, aviation, railroads and ocean liners.
