Description

Take a closer look at the striking commercial art of mid-20th-century matchbox labels, as featured in the State Library Victoria 2018 Diary, available now. These labels beautifully and intricately depict the popular culture and fashion of the time.

The State Library houses two million books, pictures, documents, maps and artefacts from across the ages. Come and discover their stories.
