Inspiration: vintage matchbox labels

Just somewhere there was this man who collected matchbox labels. I think it was a man anyway. But somehow these albums full of them, I think maybe 2500 or so, ended up on internet and I loved them so much! All these vintage prints! There was no particular order in them, just randomly put into an album. Ranging from the sixties till the seventies I think. The time when smoking was still cool and lighters were to expensive. So everyone used matches.
I have these a while now, but didn't want to share them yet, I felt like they were my little treasure. And then I saw them on another blog, and I remembered them. And I spent a whole night in, just sorting out one album. That was a Zen thing to do. There was some order! Pictures of sixties fashion, birds, typo, famous people, etc. I love these!
