japanese matchbox labels– in flight

flyingfishmatchboxlabelIn honor of a friend who is flying over water tonight, please enjoy this fanciful fish in flight on a classic Japanese matchbox label.  Or is it a marine dragon with butterfly wings?

(Love those Japanese matchbox labels.  They are quality printmaking in a tiny package– the color choices are punchy and elegant and the registration is superb. The same colors would be effective on the cover of a comic.  Image via tumblr.)
