Most widely held works by Michael Twyman
The encyclopedia of ephemera : a guide to the fragmentary documents of everyday life for the collector, curator, and historian by Maurice Rickards( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ephemera is the plural form of the Greek word ephemeron (Epi=on, about, round; Hemera=day). Literally, it refers to something that lasts through the day, or, as Maurice Rickards proposed, the minor transient documents of everyday life, although not every item of ephemera can be regarded as transient or even minor. Collectively the many entries in this formidable new reference work provide a better definition of ephemera, since they include manuscript and printed matter (sports programs, envelopes, visiting cards, ballots), records of the past and present (newspapers, cigarette cards, seed packets, ration papers), items designed to be thrown away (bus tickets, paper bags, fruit labels), and to be kept (bookmarks, playing cards, board games). This lavishly illustrated landmark volume is intended for social historians as well as collectors of ephemera who take a broader view than their own specialist field.--Book Jacket

A history of chromolithography : printed colour for all by Michael Twyman( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers--for the first time since the process was in its heyday--a detailed account of how chromolithographs were made. But whereas contemporary writers focused on the methods and practices of their own time, the author traces their evolution over a period of a hundred years. Some of the methods he describes and illustrates are so extraordinary that they require readers in our digital age to suspend their disbelief. Drawing on a variety of sources--manuals, journals, correspondence, preparatory drawings, proofs, interviews with people in the trade, as well as the products themselves--he provides fascinating insights into the methods and skills of the chromolithographer"--Dust jacket front flap
