Osaka matchboxes

I found these beautiful labels in a second-hand bookshop in Osaka. Each measures 5 x 3cm, the perfect size for a match box, and they advertise local restaurants and businesses.

On my return from Japan I scanned them at high-resolution and made a simple print of my favourite designs. Laid out at A3, the labels are printed at actual size and make for a wonderful, colourful composition.

Available to buy as a giclée A3 print.
