For a lot of people, a beloved photograph would be the top choice, but, for the purposes of this post, I'm eliminating the photo option. So, what single piece of non-photographic ephemera would you save? Your college diploma? A prized autograph? A letter from a long departed relative?
For me, it would be this scroll—the only tangible piece of my grandfather's life that I have, which I wrote about it in this old post.
I'm interested to hear about the one paper-based item you'd save above all others. If you want to share the actual item, please send me an email and I'll feature it on the site. Please be sure to provide a brief description of the item and a JPG image of it, included as an attachment to your email. If that's too much trouble, simple leave a comment about the item.
