International Matchbox

Posted in art by arcanedufresne on November 30, 2009

I stumbled across some pictures of old matchbox covers from all over the world a little while back and was completely enthralled by the artistic style of it all. I was also intrigued by the imagery of what was all on the covers as it ranged from dragons, to King Kong, to stuffed teddy bears, to missiles and even a Pegasus. The style of the art with the gradient color tones, so good.
