these are beautiful!

Thanks. This made my morning. I love it. I am truly green with envy over this project. I have hand painted matchbooks, collected matchbooks, collected books of matchbooks. What can I say I love design and fire.

Man…this is really nice. Each matchbox design is completely unique. Great job all around!

This is a beautiful collection of matchbox designs. Nice iullstrations and really cool colors. It’s great inspiration, thanks :-)

Impressive and ambitious, Pavel! The legacy for Czech matchbox labels is rich and it’s great to see a contemporary illustrator & designer carrying the torch. Eye Magazine has a great article about Solo Lipnik and the matchbox labels during the state-run era:
