Description

All Wrapped Up!

Through hundreds of eye-popping reproductions, All Wrapped Up! celebrates gift wrapthat most ephemeral of paper productsfrom the groovy 1960s. The modest palette and conventional patterns of the previous decade eventually yielded to the riotous colors, op art, and psychedelic visions that defined the late '60s, charting a course through the entire spectrum of mid-century graphic design and commercial illustration. Popular imagery of cute animals, adorable children, barbecue iconography for dad, funky florals, and Santas of every stripe grace these pages. A thoughfully wrapped present is a gift in itself, and All Wrapped Up! is the perfect package to celebrate the popular designs of the most visually exuberant decade of all.
