Typically I focus in this series on older typographical presentations (signage, posters, labels from the 1960s and before), but this morning Visual News popped in my mailbox with a post from yesterday—Unique Wine Labels from Around the World.
I'm a teetotaler (simply because I never developed a taste for wine and, heck, I can get giddy on full-strength Sprite) so most people don't know that I am a wine-label fanatic. My parents (both wine drinkers) have taken me along on many winery tours. Since I was at the time too young to drink (if I'd been so inclined) I focused on, what else, the graphics. I had a huge collection of wine labels (until they were misplaced in a move; a long, ridiculous story in which several years worth of my journals were also lost).
If you enjoy clever labels go check out this post from Visual News today.
