Graphite drawings on matchbooks based on various Google Street View photographs, by artist Krista Charles.

Artist Krista Charles, who has been col­lect­ing vin­tage match­books ever since inher­it­ing a stash from her grandfather-in-law, draws intricate landscape illustrations on the inside cover of matchbooks. For each matchbook she tracks down the address of the business using Google Maps and makes a sketch of whatever is now shown at this location.

Krista Charles | Matchbook Views | For each match­book, I find where the loca­tion of the busi­ness would be in Google Maps and on the inside cover of the match­book I make a pen­cil sketch of what­ever is now shown at this loca­tion.
