Beautiful as new planning guide used to design Cleveland's fabulous Playhouse Square entertainment area. Yes, it's book-sized, but it was produced for temporary use which qualifies it as ephemera.

The Terminal Tower Complex 1930-1980; First printing SIGNED, Jim Toman and Dan Cook
4 Jim Toman and Dan Cook The Terminal Tower Complex 1930-1980; First printing SIGNED
Clevleand, Ohio Cleveland Landmarks Press Inc. 1980 093676001x / 9780936760018 First printing Stated Card cover Fine condition 
Crisp, clean book with pristine pages and page edges. No names or writing other than having been SIGNED without inscription by both authors. Measures 8-1/2"x11" Illustrated throughout with vintage photos. Cover is fashioned of heavy pebbled paper decorated with much gilt and nice rounded corners. Printed on heavy coated paper. Binding is quite tight, so useage was minimal.It's interesting to note that this book was published at a time when the city of Cleveland was at a low point, having suffered the infamous fire on the Cuyahyoga River and great financial crisis. The purpose of this book and the others planned to accompany it was to shine a light on all that Cleveland had reason to be proud of in the hope that its future might be brighter. Terminal Tower of course was the place to begin, as its the most noteable building on the city's skyline. The text and numerous photos trace the building from 1923 when work began to 1980. Measures 8-1/2" x 11" pages. I have five more of these booklets minus the signatures.

Asian Americans AndTtheir Communities of Cleveland, Stephen Fugita, David Namkoong, Domingo Patawaran; Suey Yee
9 Stephen Fugita, David Namkoong, Domingo Patawaran; Suey Yee Asian Americans AndTtheir Communities of Cleveland
Clevelend, Ohio Celveland Ethnic Heritag Studies Cleveland State University 1977 Second printing Card cover Fine condition 
This is one of many ethnic heritage monographs based on a single culture. They have never been easy to find, though I once had six all at once. They sold over time, but I just last year got two more, both of which were replacements from ones I had before. This one is very clean and tightly bound, measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 201 pages. This isn't a booklet, but it was helpful to ask writers from these new nationalities to talk about their lives and ethnicity. As Cleveland began to grow with many Asian immigrants -- Japan, China, Korea, Filipino and Vietnamese -- the books discussed culture, memories (wa and internment camps) food, religion, family life, immigrants through the decades and more.
