Back in February, I posted about my work being featured in a Packaging book and I managed to persuade the publishers to send me a copy for free. Well, I thought it was too good to be true after nearly 2 months and no sign of a book but the other Thursday, it arrived!
I had a quick peek inside but it was only today that I finally got around to having a proper drool over it because I’ve been so busy…
I find the publication style a bit odd – it’s hardbound but the cover is about an inch smaller than the main feature pages.
At the front (the same size as the cover) there is a designer index with bibliographies of all featured. Then it leads onto the bigger pages, with the work:
My spread is pages 186-187.
It feels really weird, but good to be a published designer already at this early stage in my career – I feel really privileged! I don’t really like the piece of work anymore (it was a long time ago – college ’10!) but it is very exciting to be recognised amongst some really interesting packaging concepts. Who wants to borrow the book then?
I was a bit shocked when I saw it was worth ￥300.00 on Sendpoint’s website but then I googled how many ￥ a loaf of bread is worth and realised that it wasn’t as steep as it first seemed! I’ve found the book is available to pre-order on Amazon for just short of £22, so buy it – and if you ask me nicely, I might even sign it for you… Just kidding – I’m not a diva!
