Very nice job puamana and humuhumu! Superior work, and an astonishing collection! Better than a museum.

Ask, and ye shall receive:
Arkiva Tropika's Matchbooks
"Matchbook" is one of the tags puamana has created, so if you want to see all of them, just use the matchbook tag. You can do this by selecting "Matchbook" from the list of tags. The most popular tags are on the left-hand side of the screen, and there is a link to "All Tags" at the bottom of that list. Or, you can search using tags; enter the tags you want to see in the search box, set the search to "Tags" (it defaults to "Text"), and hit "Go".
Tag search is pretty powerful, you can combine tags, and you can use tags for exclusion. For instance, you can choose to look at only hotel postcards, or only hotel postcards that aren't pictures of a hotel room. Here are the instructions for using Arkiva Tropika's search function.

Absolutely incredible! After seeing bits and pieces of your collection on Critiki, it's really great to be able to view so much of it in one place.
Another classic Humu website too. Her style is immediately recognizable.

Just saw this now, congrats, Mimi! To share your visual jewels with others who appreciate it is the best reward for the collector. Can't wait to see what's new.
