Japanese Matchbox Covers




These are just a few examples from an amazing Flickr set of vintage Japanese matchbox covers by Jane McDevitt (aka maraid), a designer and photographer based in Yorkshire, UK. Jane writes that these were collected by the grandfather of her friend Michael, and date from around the 1920s-40s. Love these! Have a look at more great examples from the collection here.

Her link to Soviet Era children's books was amazing too. Thanks for the heads up.
