Whoa Buzzy I didn't realize you had that many (so far)--great stuff! I bet you and DustyCajun are neck and neck for who has the most matchbooks.

I bet if you scanned each one individually you could upload them into Cafe Press and make tshirts out of them all. I bet you could make a good living off of selling another person's artwork. Can't wait to see your book--the text alone is riveting!

That's a fantastic collection, Buzzy! All joking aside, I'd buy that book. But I don't recommend making shirts out of them, there's no money in it.

Just added a cleaned up copy of the Kon Tiki menu to the Dropbox link.

Added a few new things to the folder. Some new matchbooks, and a Kahiki drinks postcard. I picked up a Trader Vic's Habana menu and I'm working on cleaning it up now. It's a bit of an ordeal because it was printed on very textured paper. Not sure how I'm going to clean that up yet—but I will!

I need to clear up space in my Dropbox, so if you want any items grab them soon.

Edit: I'll try and find somewhere else to put everything so it doesn't permanently disappear. I'd move it to Tikipedia but I'm concerned about bandwidth.

Excellent! OK, here's a postcard from the Outrigger in Denver's Cosmopolitan hotel: [link removed]

And because that menu was so awesome, here's a bonus link to a scan of a Don The Beachcomber match cover scanned at a luxurious 600 DPI: [link removed]




Hey, what happened to the linked menus?
