Throwback Thursday: Boston matchbook covers

A couple of months ago, I posted some gorgeous images of vintage cover designs from Boston Public Library‘s rare books collection, made available on their beautifully extensive Flickr stream. Now it’s my pleasure to introduce you to some more great finds in the BPL’s Flickr collections: vintage Boston matchbook covers from their Matchcover Collection set:

I’ve lived in Boston for over seven years now, and I have yet to set foot in the BPL. What the hell am I waiting for?!

P.S.: For those of you in/around Boston, on the evening of the 17th, the BPL is presenting “The Great Poe Debate” (re: Edgar Allan Poe’s Boston connections). More info HERE.

  1. Yeah. What the hell are you waiting for, brother?

    But big thanks to you for featuring our matchbook collection. We’re pretty proud of it and I, personally, am thrilled that you come back to our Flickr collection because you trust us to post cool stuff. Please keep it up.
