Matchboxes by Pavel Fuksa

While I am aware that society has moved towards lighters (even more elaborate ones with coloured flames and wind resistance), there lies a special place in my heart for old matchboxes. It’s just something about the antiquated look combined with catchy art that draws me to them. Now I’m obviously not talking about the boring ones made by cigarette companies in hopes of promoting their brands. The ones that really catch my attention are typically printed with older vintage graphics such as the ones designed by Prague based designer Pavel Fuksa.

Below is a neat and catchy music video which Pavel created 178 matchbox arts for. Enjoy!
