Vintage Matchbox Labels

I have been repeatedly mesmerized by the vibrant images that have been flowing over at Agence Eureka. One of my frequent go-to sources for a variety of French ephemera, Agence Eureka has most recently been posting the most fabulous vintage matchbook covers, primarily from India. The color palette, the type, and the illustrations (frequently of animals and birds) are brilliant.

See what you think. Oh, and trust me, there are a lot more where these came from: check out Agence Eureka’s Inde Allumette Flickr set for many many more.
