QUERY: NUMISMATIC AND EXONUMIC INAUGURAL SOUVENIRS SOUGHT FOR WHITMAN VAULT BOOK PROJECT

Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing writes:
Whitman Publishing is creating a "Vault" book similar in format to this one - Obama Vault Book - but focusing specifically on President Obama's inauguration. A Whitman "Vault" book includes replicas of tickets, programs, bumper stickers, posters, and other ephemera and memorabilia, tucked into its pages. If any E-Sylum readers have numismatic or exonumic souvenirs of the inauguration that they'd like to share for possible publication, please contact publisher Dennis Tucker at dennis.tucker@whitmanbooks.com or 404-235-5348.

Examples might include medals, tokens, scrip, or even commemorative Metro passes, phone cards, or similar --- I'll let the reader define "numismatic" and "exonumia"! Souvenirs from the days leading up to the inauguration (e.g., from the Inaugural Train trip) or following (e.g., from the inaugural balls and celebrations) are also welcome.


I like the concept of a "Vault" book, as long as the replicas are clearly identified as such, with markings difficult to remove without damage to the item. Today's replicas can be tomorrow's dealer and collector headaches.

Here's the description of Whitman's first Vault book. -Editor
This month Whitman Publishing published an unforgettable portrait of Barack Obama's historic national campaign and his election as the 44th president of the United States. The Barack Obama Collector's Vault combines an engaging narrative with hundreds of photographs and --- tucked among its pages --- a treasure trove of memorabilia: souvenir replicas such as bumper stickers, posters, tickets, staff passes, and more. You can see the book here: Obama Vault Book
