Matchboxes: Grand Hotel, Taiwan

My latest look at matchbooks leads me to this one, which is actually a matchbox, the type where the matches slide out in a little compartment. I had two of these for the photograph, so you both the front and the back at the same time.

My first thought is how cool it is that the Grand Hotel got such a great phone number, really hard to mis-dial that number. Secondly, I really like the fact that then entire one side is just a picture of the hotel, with no wording at all on that side. This is a really simple design with only basic information. Not all advertising needs to be wordy. Sometimes you can just tell them what they need to know.

Anyway, I liked this set of matchboxes. Do you have some pictures to share? Send them to Steve @ this domain and I’ll post them.
