  1. I really love the simplicity on allot of the lines and shapes. The bleeding of the inks is a cool detail to see in these scans. I also like the look of the misaligned colors when the registration is shifted off a bit. Adding little details like shifting the registration of a color in a vintage poster design would really help emphasize that authentic vintage feel. Super rad find James, I’ll definitely be “wasting” some time looking through the rest of these.

  2. The rooster is promoting the brands “Boston” chicken soup. It looks to me like the matchbook maker was selling ad space on the matchbook cover.
