Wrappers Delight


Published by FUEL and compiled by Trunk Records owner (and self-proclaimed nostalgia lover) Jonny Trunk, Wrappers Delight features 500+ images of British drink, confectionary, and candy packaging from 1950 through 1980. “Decisions about what to include were based on three parameters set by FUEL and myself,” Trunk writes in the book’s introduction. “1) We had to like the item for nostalgic reasons. 2) We had to like it for graphic reasons. 3) We had to have room for it in a 240-page book, which was looking problematic as we started with well over 1,500 items I had selected.” Whether using the book as a reference point for design projects or source of inspiration and entertainment, the contents are sublime—bright, bold, retro, kitsch and everything between.
