This brick of a book is brilliant. It features all sorts of fabulous, interesting things, from toys and tots, to cooks and coffee, animals and brutalist buildings, war machines and washing machines. And all of these fabulous and interesting things are featured on matchbox labels from Czechoslovakia, Poland, Russia, Hungary and Germany. But, most importantly, each mid-century label in the book is a graphic joy to behold. Amazing fun.
