Matchbook Covers as Art

The last Woodside Antiques auction we attended must have been in, what… January? That’s when we acquired the Victorian scrapbook and the sewing basket filled with dozens of spools of vintage thread. And the Victorian handmade lace, the 1920s dresses… great bunches of “stuff” at some very low prices. Yes, I’m talking to myself. Didn’t I end up with a huge box filled with matchbooks? It was the time I bid without knowing I’d done so? Yeah, it’s all coming back to me now. Well, seems the $5.00 purchase price may not have been so ignorant after all. Turns out, matchbooks are collectible. Who knew? You did, right? Why didn’t you tell me?

I have, quite literally, a cubic foot of matchbooks. Some from 1940s New Orleans clubs, others from Las Vegas in the 60s, and hundreds more from all over the world. Tonight, as I scoured the ephemera offerings on ebay, I came across a selection of matchbooks up for bid. Clicking around for more information yielded starting bids of $2.99 and up for one matchbook.

Over the coming fortnight, I shall endeavor to compile a few dozens of those digital photographs everyone is talking about these days. Images of my many MANY matchbooks.

Stand back collectors! Soon ye shall feast your eyes upon the splendor that is MY Matchbook Collection. Talk about ephemera… Matches. Just how much more transitory can an item be?

I’m exhausted tonight, spent a large part of the morning entertaining the #1 grandballoon and then all afternoon creating a front porch mobile (used part of a mule harness for the starter, the some old 78 rpm records, a set of 1960s-era plastic goldfish, and…) which means this post is rambling and only baseline coherent. Pray I have time to edit before it posts itself the evening of April 6th.

    Anonymous Postcard

    Sometimes a great notion

    becomes a reality.

    Tucker Nichols removes the mundane and confusing olive pits left unconsumed when one finishes the martini of life and creates something beautiful. The Anonymous Postcard. Submit your claim today. I did.

    To the family in the yellow house around the corner – Please clean up after your dog. My yard is not a toilet. I don’t care if your floofloo registered poodle gets groomed twice a month and has painted toenails. Her poo gets on my shoe.

    Sometimes, it’s almost as if The Genius makes me weep. Other times? Not so much.

    Expect more genius over the next few weeks. Artist Trading Cards, Sister Trading Cards, Land Mail Art Objects, The Eternal Network, the International Union of Mail Artists, Nervousness.org … The Thing (an object based quarterly publication). Eventually there could be Steampunk. Perhaps some Jonathan Letham? As they say on the tube: stay tuned.

    IBX Artist Collective

    Schenley Farms Collection now online, see link above. More photos available soon. This collection contains altered books, small boxes, and a pocketbook purse. Inspiration came from Donna Parker teen novels, Woodrow Wilson’s papers, WWI ephemera, and a photo of my father’s soldier cousin whose last name was “Schorr” thus prompting the ultimate pick-up line of all time “Hey ladies, stick close to the shore…”

    The first Artist Exchange was held today at the First Baptist Church from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. Carolyn, Danny, Valda and others participated. Apparently most of the fun happened before 12 noon, my arrival time, but I found some goodies despite my tardy appearance. It is one of my fondest hopes that such an event occurs on a regular basis. We all have bits and pieces to sell or give away and the comraderie is important also. Artists, like writers, need to engage in some sort of collective reparte’ — collaboration? No, not necessarily. It’s more as if a conflagration of creative spirits causes a spike in the collective mindset.

    We shall begin a FaceBook account for the area artist exchange and hopefully share our resources as well as our spirit.

    Adding a new gallery tonight

    This is not just an altered book. Dragonwyck creates a mood, a moment in time… more on this particular piece will be revealed after the Oscars are over and when I have a brain again. And it is also not clearly available, although the gallery is loaded because the page is under the header image, the green graphic, and this must be corrected. You can see Dragonwyck Gallery by clicking here.

    Looking into Red Bubble

    Red Bubble‘s credo is similar to the Dead Mule. We tell everyone to submit, “you’re a writer because you say you are.” It’s refreshing to read that on an art site. Red Bubble sells photographs, big, beautiful, gorgeous photos. Of course, I like the collages the best but you should check out all the works. Look up Kurt Tutschek’s collages. Especially the “Woman who dreamt of becoming a seahorse” – it is phenomenal. I am negotiating with my internal banker about whether or not to buy a copy… so far, the pros outweigh the cons.

    Quote:

    The RedBubble community exists to challenge the elitism of the traditional art world.

    We believe that everyone’s an artist. We think creative expression and communication should be encouraged and celebrated.

    The RedBubble website helps us communicate with artists and showcase the work created by the community.
