Music is meant to be heard, yet there is a whole subculture of the musicindustry that is solely devoted to the production of music on theprinted page – sheet music. In the world of antiques, sheet music isclassified under the category of “ephemera,” which are printed or paper items that were originally expected to have only a short-term usefulness or popularity.

Vintagesheet music has two natures. The basic function is to pass along themusical ideas of a composer – the actual transcription of a piece orsolo. A secondary feature, and the main one for collectors, is thevisual impact of the cover.

Sheet music is something to be used,yet also a piece of art to be saved and visually enjoyed. The coversoffer keen insight into the world as it was, reflecting the passage oftime. It's the memories and history they invoke that transcends themusic they contain.

Lavishly illustrated with over 700 faithfulreproductions of sheet music covers, this collection provides fans withan indispensable outlet to connect with these pieces from the past,preserving their remarkable perspective, their visual delight, and thecolorful history they represent.
