Matchbook Collection

People sure collect all kinds of things!

A Collector's Album of Matchbooks

Obviously there are, or were, a good number of people who collected matchbooks, as it was worth it to publish a book specially made for the collector to put them in. I like the special skinny-slot page for the skinny matchbooks.

This album in our ephemera collection is very partial, either because lots of the matchbooks fell out before we got it, or it was a work in progress that got abandoned. (Of course none of us would be start something we didn't finish!)
