Vintage Poison Labels

October 6th, 2008 by Cobwebs

Poison LabelThe delightful Spookshows site has posted a selection of vintage poison labels, including a zip file of high-resolution images. They suggest attaching them to drinks at a Halloween party, but these would also be perfect as part of a collage or other artwork.

It’d be particularly cool to silkscreen a few of these onto fabric and sew up a really unique skirt or clutch. They’d also be nice, enlarged and framed, as artwork (hang a couple next to the bathroom medicine cabinet).

    I recently came by a bunch of old, unlabeled glass bottles. Methinks I shall make some labels for them!
