More Lovely Matchbox Labels
So fantastic... I can't get enough of these at the moment. There are several others in this series and I think they date from the early 1970s. Its a pity matchboxes aren't this exciting any more.I remember going on holiday to Spain when I was a kid and spending half the time hanging around bins and litter trying to collect interesting matchboxes. Some things never change...although I have to admit I didn't have to hang around bins in Eastern Europe to get these. If you like this sort of thing - matchbox labels, not foraging in bins, I mean - you might find yourself wanting to buy this book on the subject. (A shameless plug as I used to share a studio with Jane Smith, the author of the book ).Worth a look.
