Phillumeny (also known as
phillumenism) is the hobby of
collecting different match-related
items including matchboxes,
matchbox labels, matchbooks,
matchcovers, matchsafes, etc.
After sorting through thousands
of local, vintage match covers,
55 unique, local matchcovers
were finally selected for their
intrinsic qualtiy and nostalgic
value then arranged graphically
to comprise phillumen 55.
