You don't see them much anymore, but matchbooks used to be quite common and they were given away freely. If a table had an ashtray on it it usually had one or two matchbooks sitting in it. They had a lot of graphics and advertising crammed onto their small spaces.

There are more examples after the jump, and more at Flickr where I found these samples.
