Selections from My Collection of Business Cards in an Autumnal Palette

 For years I have been a dedicated deltiologist--Greek for "nut who collects business cards."

 Once I have harvested a big batch, I sort them out and mount them in books.

 Probably four-fifths of the cards, if not more, are from New York City.

 But I also pick them up from places I visit. The round card above is from a buttonarium in Berlin. (Knopf is German for button.)

 I especially relish the photographic business cards--like the left one on the second row above, from the Stage Deli.
