Broad Theme: Form

Although most of the John Johnson Collection is arranged by subject, several sections contain various forms or genres of ephemera. These are listed below.  There is, of course, significant overlap between subject and form. Labels, for example, are arranged by the products they were created for, which in turn are represented in the Advertising sections.

Conversely we assign genre terms to everything we catalogue, using a variety of thesauri.
