Since 1968, Michael McHenry collects vintage labels that pack Chinese firecrackers, which are found in all traditional celebrations. A fascinating collection that documents the evolution of designs and graphic styles, and the imagery related to firecrackers. Some of these labels are very rare and can reach very high prices. You can discover his entire collection on his Flickr account.
