Modern Czech matchbox label

1960s czech matchbox label

Solo Lipnik – UUZO Praha – Pronti Tetanu label – 1960s?

Super cool matchbox label from Czechoslovakia. Pretty intense colors. Nothing like taking a bike ride through a field of ketchup. Can anyone translate the text?

It means “Vaccination protects you against the tetanus”. So the red field is blood, not ketchup. :) I think it is from 50’s.

I wrote dissertation on Czech design and in my research I found great visuals of matchboxes labels from Solo Lipnik from 1950-1970s
