MATCHBLOC is a compendium of matchbox labels from the Eastern Bloc, from the 1950s to early 1980s. Over 400 labels from Poland, Russia, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, and more are depicted, with themes that range from animals, household, food, sports, the outdoors, children, and the arts, to industry, architecture, transport, and the military. Encompassing a huge variety of illustrative styles and political and social messages, the labels have been diligently collected and compiled by Jane McDevitt, a web designer and avid collector of graphics and ephemera, and Neal Wittington, a graphic designer and lover of labels, tickets, and forms from around the world.
