Bus Tickets

I bought a whole load of old bus tickets a few weeks ago. I love all these old bits of ephemera because of all the clashing typefaces, all the information and grids and because I love the cheapness of it. There's something about cheaply made tickets and the like, the numbers printed on badly and wonky, things like that. I love the randomness of it. And also because of the fact that they were once just everyday items, and now we see them as something beautiful. I wonder what everyday items we have now will one day be looked at in the same way?
