This book is chock full of Public Domain cigar box labels!
Apparently the book was meant to be a portfolio / advertising mechanism of sorts for O.L. Schwencke Lithography of New York & Chicago and it features exactly 90 different vibrantly colored vintage cigar box label prints.
Know matter how you feel about cigar smoking, this book is a ton of fun and the prints inside would make great content for collectors of smoking related vintage collectibles – yes, there’s a huge market for this stuff! Just check eBay.
Here’s a few hand-picked samples from the book…
I can visualize using these images in so many ways.
- A download link to 72 dpi versions of all 89 prints in the book… (46 MB)
- A download link to The Prints From O.L. Schwencke’s “Cigar Box Labels” at 300 dpi (BIG: 487 MB)
I originally offered these high resolution 300dpi images at
$1 each totally $89. Which I think is a steal.
This site was on a server that crashed – and had no backup. Anywhere!!! I’ve recreated this site and have included New pricing!
