The Josh Spear site points to a fascinating book by Tanja Backe which displays a huge collection of tickets gathered over 20 years. One To One presents tickets that come from airplanes, trains, ferries buses, the metro, cloakrooms, and parking lots, bank and taxi receipts, inspection labels, admission tickets for museums, theatres, cinemas, circuses, operas, zoos, concerts, ballets and “even reptile shows”. The site says:

Organized non-chronologically and non-linearly, the book can be read according to individual preferences. The collection reprints the tickets at actual-size, one-to-one, organized by colors. Backe guides us through the variety of typefaces, languages, formats, styles, backgrounds, brand identities, illustrations, and other graphic elements of this sweeping collection.
