Are the women in the Dresden's matchbook conjoined twins?

Personal #20:
SM seeks double-jointed supermodel who own brewery and grows own pot. Access to free concert tickets a plus, as is having open-minded twin sister!

One of my treasured possessions is my (nonsmoking) grandfather's collection of matchboxes from th 1920s-1040s period. The detail and ornamentation still enchants.

Uh, that's 1920s to 1940s period.

Not without a monocle it isn't.

With illegal smoke-easy bars popping up in major cities where bans are in effect, thanks to the bans that are making smoking look rebellious, it's cooler than ever!

After losing a jacket to a spontaneously combusting pack of matches years ago, I now look at all matchbooks with suspicion. Great collections here though.

Thanks for post this, but... could they make the navigation any more annoying? When will other news websites figure out what does so well -- make the picture BIG so we can actually see the details, and put them all on one page so that you can scroll through easily. I don't get why this is so hard for designers to figure out.

This. The ratio of the movie credits on this page to their original size on theater screens could only be expressed by a sequel to the Eames' movie Powers of Ten.
