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.

Welcome to the vintage brilliance of 26 Olive Street. Their old-school offerings and fabulously composed polaroid-style photos make me giddy (to an annoying degree, I’m sure). I bet they’ll have the same effect on you.

For more great images, check out 26 Olive Street’s Flickr page and their blog. Oh, and you can get all their updates by following them on Twitter HERE.
