Flickr Mondays — Vintage Matchboxes

For the upcoming issue of Uppercase, Janine Vangool asked readers to reinterpret vintage matchbox labels inspired by her own collection. You’ll have to wait to see the submissions, but Janine has posted a huge number of her vintage collection on Flickr. Here are a few of our favorites, head to flickr to see hundreds more.



As an added bonus, subscribers to Uppercase will each receive one of the matchbox covers from Janine’s collection in issue 8.

I was just looking around on Grain Edit and found a rather old post about the Mid-century Modern Sticker, Label and Stamp Club. I figure since the images in the club are all from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s, it it OK that I’m a little late on posting about this. It is an AWESOME collection of, as the name would suggest, stickers, stamps and labels. The collection is beautiful to look at, but could also serve as a great resource for inspiration.
