Good Design In Any Language

I spied these matchbox cover designs featuring animals and just loved the simplicity and fun of it. A Spanish design from the 1970's - Cruz, Novillo and Olmos to be exact.

I'm a BIG sucker for just about anything designed from the 50's to the 70's! In fact, when we purchased our house 7 years ago now, we were in the process of renovating it when we came upon a box of matchbox covers that the previous owner had compiled. We had such fun looking through them and discovering some fun designs - even some animal ones similar to these. Thanks to Rachel at Hand Made Charlotte for searching these colorful ones out and sharing! What fun!
