Ephemera is a relatively new area of collecting, and the definition is still under some discussion. The current generally accepted definition is the collecting of any man made paper object that is created with no intention of permanence. If it is made of paper, and most people would throw it away after use, then it is ephemera. Examples include newspapers, outdated maps, and old letters. Some items in this category border on the deliberately collectible, such as postcards.
