I love these matchbooks found at a flea market by the very lucky Mary & Matt
. They were designed for US food company Hunt-Wessen by the wonderful Saul Bass Associates
, who also created their company logo in 1964...
I saw the full set of matchbooks for the first time at the Design Museum's Saul Bass exhibition in 2004 and remember thinking how great it would be to find some at a carboot sale. It just goes to show it can happen!Matchbook image copyright Mary & Matt.
