Labels #2

The success of a wine can sometimes be due to the appeal of its label. We’ve seen how a few designers have developed this idea, giving new meanings to a flat piece of paper.

Last April came out a book which compiles a selection of labels. The thesis of this book is that labels are a very specific field, and that with the packaging generally speaking they create a great complexity of messages: labels do contain words, information and number which resume years of efforts. It took over 400 days to write Wine Labels, and the author tried to make a selection of the most used sizes of the bottles for every kind of wine.

The book itself  recalls itself  the size of a bottle and the cover seems made of cork: it can’t be missing in the perfect library of a wine enthusiast!
