“Guess what ? you don’t have to collect ink blotters to find this book invaluable. You don’t have to care about these absorbable paper dinosaurs, driven to extinction by the ballpoint pen, to find this guide worthwhile. You don’t have to know these fuzzy-backed ads from an igloo to find this book a fascinating paper trail of Americana. Chances are, whatever you collect appears on an Advertising Ink Blotter.

This is the first book of its kind. Based on a private collection of over fifty thousand Advertising Ink Blotters acquired during a lifetime, with colorful examples from the 19th and 20th centuries, from the U.S. and beyond, it offers inside information to collectors of just about everything – including blotters. Once printed as giveaways, blotters are anything but today! As you’ll see from the price list.

Advertising Ink Blotters, charming yet off-overlooked objects of ephemera, deserve a book of their own. Here it is, ten years in the making. You’ll find a rare look at the goods and services; graphics and sales messages of an age where a blot of ink created a vast industry. Soak it up !”
