Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the amazingly creative and slightly wacky team at Redstone has done it again--this time, in addition to the perennial and popular Redstone Diary comes a series of postcards inspired by the miniaturist magic of matchbox label art. Each set contains 24 postcards of striking and bizarre images borrowed from actual matchbox collections around the world. Your very own collection of small prints to keep or to mail to friends, these astonishing matchbox images have the distinctive flair that has made Redstone famous.

Review:

Weird and wonderful, this collection of 24 different postcards celebrates the bizarre art form of topsy-turvy faces. Inspired by the miniaturist magic of matchbox label art created by unknown artists all over the world, these cards can be viewed upside down or right side up (or is it the other way around?)--either way, a face appears. Noses become forehead creases, mustaches become sweet little curls on a girl's head. Every minute, day and night, in a thousand places, East, West, North, South, at the lighting of a million cigarettes, oil lamps, and gas stoves, the subliminal glimpse of a matchbox label accompanies the elemental thrill of sparking fire! Spark someone's interest--send a card today!
