i ordered this sweet book about two days ago and it came already! it is brilliant. i love the artwork on these ol' matchboxes. the latest issue of print magazine features the inside of a book jacket with a bunch of matchboxes and it reminded me how much i love these. a few years back i used to bid on them on ebay (a passing obsession) i did win one lot of "le petites" that are just little gorgeous gems. in the print article the artist said something that struck a chord (ding)...they are like opening little boxes of treasures, isn't it the truth (except one most always finds matches) but what if we would collage inside of them....ah the possibilities......... think of it folks!
