the anti-cover...:)

I have border line unhealthy fascination with vintage match box covers. The one that I particularly remember from my childhood had 'don't play with matches' written on the cover. I couldn't wait to grow up and play with matches. "How much fun could they possibly cram into this little box?"
Anyway, I've designed the anti-cover for that match box label... just because!

I love match book covers. I get so excited when restaurants have matches, I can't resist grabbing a box. I just discovered this great store in Brooklyn called Junk where they have a whole bin of matchbooks/boxes for 5 cents a piece!
