So you've played around with making gifts bags and boxes as well as making your own labels, now you're ready for the next step to up the ante. This book will give you the information and suggestions to bring your packaging skills to the next level. However, don't mistake this book for a straight how-to book. There are actually few step by step instructions. Instead, it gives you a quick survey of the different types of methods, materials and products to help you reach the next level and expand your skill set. There are also plenty of samples of independent artists and their work to give you an idea of the possibilities. Truthfully, this is more of a graphic artist ideas book however, for the budding packaging artist, this is a great introduction to the professional level of package design and construction.
