Scavenging for Graphics: Wine Labels

April 17, 2013

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.

    An old book designer like yourself should surely love the second one.

    Marsha, I love BOTH the sites and curse you (lightly) for drawing them to my attention when I have so much to wade through—but I’ll take a longer peak when things settle down. THANK YOU
