Matchbook Prints

A few years back, while browsing an estate sale, I came across a remarkable collection of vintage matchbooks. Being a graphic designer, their iconic and often minimalist designs immediately caught my eye. The aged and weathered look of these matchbooks added a unique character, each telling its own historical story. This find was captivating, not just for its historical allure but also for the insight it offered into the classic world of branding.
