Fascinating Matchbook Art - The latest article at Dark Roasted Blend

Check out the latest article at Dark Roasted Blend, entitled Fascinating Matchbook Art.

Matches have been part of our lives for well over a hundred years. Everyone is familiar with matchbooks, where the match must be torn away to strike it and the matchbox, where the matches are loosely packed in a cardboard tray. The outer covers of both of these can be decorated with the manufacturers logo or with advertising. Matchbooks were at their peak in the 1940’s and 50’s, when they were popular souvenir items, but they have made something of a comeback recently due to the public interest in retro advertising. 

Fascinating Matchbook Art is now published at Dark Roasted Blendamong the finest locations online to find the weird, the wonderful and the fantastic, crammed with great articles, stunning photography, plus fabulous new content which appears daily.
