Indian Ephemera
For quite a while I've been scanning and uploading various bits of ephemera collected during my time in India. The bulk of it is matchboxes, but there's also a lot of firework wrappers, educational posters, and miscellany. They are beautiful examples of Indian graphic design: strange and colorful, sometimes unintentionally hilarious, sometimes exquisite, and often based on hand-painted pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Love it. My buddy Steve has been collecting traditional medicine packets from SE Asia for the past 25 years.
