close cover before striking


Now wouldn't you just know the hobby of collecting matchbooks would be known as Phillumeny!

The match "folder" was patented on this day in 1892. I only have about a half-dozen, but I still find some designs from the past fascinating...

Of course, there are the pinups.

Similarly, there are these matchbox covers from around the Wide Wide World that I think are just great.
