Item description for Matchbook: Indian Matchbox Labels by Shahid Datawala...

Designed as a large matchbox, complete with slipcase and striking edge, Matchbook is the first-ever collection of Indian matchbox labels.

Curious and visually stunning, matchbox labels come in a staggering variety of designs. A well-established brand quickly spawns imitations and variations as small producers compete with the large in an anarchic marketplace.

The book showcases almost one thousand colorful members of this extended family, including such brands as Cheetah Fight, Judo Deluxe, Tip Top, and New Shit. The introduction provides an insight into India's complex match industry, where an unjust economy throws a shadow over the vibrant graphics it produces.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
