Matchbook Cover Art

Matchbooks are similar to roadside signage in their ability to capture the flavor of an era's commercial culture, as well as the fallout of bigger design trends. Their distinction, of course, is in the smallness of their space, which mandates a high degree efficiency to convey the explicit business message while communicating the intended social/cultural overtones at the same time.
