The beginning of the 20th century saw an explosion in the publishing of sheet music for popular parlor songs. Every middle-class home had a piano and folks entertained themselves with these sweet sentimental tunes. Period Paper is pleased to offer a collection of these songs in Large Format sheet music form. The artwork featured on each cover is as fascinating and diverse as the music itself. Whether your interest is musical history, cover design, vintage vaudeville songs, or you are simply looking for the unusual -- a unique original piece of framable art -- this collection has something for you! Please note that while the music is complete in these items, many of these pieces are in a condition that we generally avoid in other types of ephemera -- e.g. with tears, spine separation, chipping, signatures, etc. However, this is common for sheet music, and it is obvious from their condition that these items were "well-loved" and we offer them with as clear a condition summary as possible.
