Ephemeral films are non-fiction films usually made for educational, industrial, or promotional purposes. The two classic ephemeral film collections found on the Archive are the Prelinger Archives and AV Geeks. In addition to these classic collections, you may view guidance films from the post-World War II British government, drive-in movie intermission ads, and videos documenting the history of San Francisco from 1906 to the early 21st Century.

"To printers -- the following are specimens of a portion only of types, which we offer for sale at one-half their cost. The late B.B. Penhallow was a liberal buyer of every new style of type that appeared. What we now offer is not offered for sale because it is old or worn, (for it has been very little used,) but merely because our supply of types is in excess of our present needs ..."--Page 3

A high-quality digitization of the complete 1923 edition of the American Type Founders (ATF) Specimen Book. Considered by many to be the culmination of specimen printing, it is an important, and massive volume, documenting the culture of printing, advertising, and typography in the early 20th century. This issue is optimized for mobile devices. This work is in the public domain. Digitized by David Armstrong/Sevanti Letterpress.

1907 type specimen book of the Barnhart Brothers and Spindler type foundry in Chicago. Assembled from scans presented by The Hathi Trust of the University of Michigan copy (Hathi Trust ID: mdp.39015019203291 ). This is the BB&S Specimen Book No. 9. It was issued in at least four versions, numbered "9", "9*", "9**", and "9***". This version says "SPECIMEN BOOK NO. 9" on its title page. Confusingly, though, the bibliographic record for it at...
