      Another year of many forms of phillumeny from many countries. Look forward to seeing the next one. All entries are of great interest I believe to many phillumenists.

Congratulations to the BML&BS members behind the scenes responsible for putting this together and many sincere thanks to the enthusiastic band of exhibitors from around the world willing to share their beloved and multi-faceted hobby with the wider audience. Well done!

                    Thanks for this Exhibition. It provides a fascinating insight into matchbox designs from around the world. So much work has gone into this from a number of very enthusiastic individuals who are obviously passionate about this subject. Great job! All the best

                    • Tom O'Key ,

                      Thank you, Society, for extending the opportunity to all categories of Phillumeny, in participating in the Exhibition for 2023. My interest in Phillumeny extends beyond the subject of matches, where the content of my study and collection are guided by the works of Miller Christy as he documented Edward Bidwell’s efforts to gather examples representing the fullest context of the subject called Phillumeny.
                      In emulating the spectrum of interest shown by these early predecessors in this topic, modern capabilities with worldwide communication at a finger’s reach, not only has the ability to surpass Christy’s expectations of any collection comparing with Bidwell’s accomplishment, but, in many cases, adding in with new information that was impossible to find, a century ago.
                      With that, I am excited and happy to visit the submissions from kin in the hobby and offer my gratitude to the organizers for their exemplary work in presenting this exhibition.
