Matchbox Label Collection 1920s-1940s is a wonderful testament to the power of compact graphic design, filled with colour, quirky illustration and interesting typography. Matches were one of Japan's main exports after the Meiji period. This volume features a parade of Japanese matchbox labels from the Taisho and early Showa periods, produced to promote coffee shops, bars, inns, and more.
