Compiled by Roger Fawcett-Tang and Daniel Manson. The reason I have this book is because of the wacky collections and ideas of packaging it contains. It proves you can really push a crazy idea. Some of the packaging actually looks a bit futuristic. It covers great points such as proportions, packaging, printing, interaction and materials. I love it more mostly because it comes with templates for your own packaging ideas. As to the reading its pretty short, each chapter has an introduction and there's the description about each packaging and the information of its designer. Here's a peek to some of my favorite pages:
You can also take a peek through google books. Enjoy!.
