The book “History of wine labels” tells about the history of wine labels. The writing of the book was preceded by a large historical study, during which a huge number of archives from all over the world were raised. The large volume of the presented material is compensated for the reader by a light syllable, opening new pages of the fascinating history of wine labels. In addition to the text, the book will meet the reader with photographs both modern and made tens and hundreds of years ago, and some will be presented in the book for the first time. For a complete historical picture in the book, I focused on one of the most important aspects in the world of wine labels – their geographical origin. Using chapter inserts as an opportunity to add additional information, readers are invited to discover a selection of authentic photos of local residents, and sometimes even celebrities of wine lovers. Iconic labels of wine, champagne and other wine products are illustrated throughout the book.
The book is made in a narrow vertical format of the wine list (105 x 297 mm), and this is not for nothing, because the first thing that comes to mind when we see such a format, of course, is wine, wine and wine again.
Fonts have a special semantic role and are not chosen by chance. “Cosmetic” is comparable to the fonts of the first wine labels, and the “Graphik” font is a new trend, a minimalistic grotesque illustrating the trends of modern design.
The book “History of wine labels” becomes an ideal way to immerse yourself in the history and distribution of wine drinks and wine labels around the world. The history of wine labels is important for understanding the industrial and graphic aspects of packaging design.
