This is the forth matchbox cover post. I'll be showing some magnificent designs from my second book that holds jewels from China, Japan and India and some gems from The Netherlands' neighbours Germany and Belgium.
I'd like to kick off with a serie from Macau and Hong Kong. Behold the covers from scrapbook two, part one:
Lot's of the Chinese designs also have Portuguese texts on them. Macau was the first and last European colony in China. In the early 16th century Portuguese traders settled down the peninsula and subsequently administered the region until the handover in 1999.
I love this cover above for its great perspective effect.
