Here are some vintage matchbook covers grabbed from this mighty Flickr set. I love everything about these. Solid design made through obvious limitations in printing quality. These guys did what they had to in order to make their brands stand out in the world of matches. I especially love the texture on these blown-up scans and slight blurriness and overlap of the ink. The real deal.
At least, I think these are all matchbook covers. Not sure why that rooster is talking about soup. That’s all kinds of confusing.
Beware of this Flickr set, man. Serious time waster.
