Gestalten's comprehensive tome on all things creative and packaging


Gestalten is one of our favorite publishers, and they’ve hit LIAS bullseye with their recent Boxed and Labelled tome — in their words, “a comprehensive overview of the most intelligent, innovative, playful and attractive examples of current packaging design. The broad spectrum of packaging is illustrated through an extensive selection of products characterized by cutting-edge graphic design, sassy illustrations, striking typography, careful use of color as well as unique materials. The examples in the book run the gamut from jam jars, chocolate wrappers, wine labels, champagne bottles and perfume flacons to sneaker boxes and shopping bags.” Seeing how much of a sucker I am for clever packaging (in love with those Scotch bottles below), this book would’ve made an excellent Xmas present for yours truly.

Pick it up for $41 at Amazon (Edited by R. Klanten, S. Ehmann, H. Baltzer, S. Moreno). Some spreads from the Boxed and Labelled book below…
