Matchbox collection.

A few favourite ones out of my match box collection. Counted them a week back. 280 is the number of matchboxes, I have picked up in the past 4 years. The style of the matchboxes are varied but, a few things can be collected after observing the over all look and feel of it. Generally manufactured with using bright red, yellow, blue and at times green colour. Some try gradients in the background with actual photographs, suggesting the role of digital media venturing in the local graphic design space. My favourites are the one which have quirky titles, outlined bold typography and good use of positive and negative space. I love the 'LOVE' one with two swans.
