Issue 38: Golden
This issue is all about packaging and containers! From tins to boxes, wrapping to bottles, all kinds of packages are represented, designed and appreciated.
The other main topic is finding order from chaos - fitting for this lovely riot of color that is Uppercase Magazine.
We also explore artists who work in gold foil, paper, and jewelry, and visit a purveyor in Italy of fine ribbons and scissors.
The lovely photo on the cover is of vintage tins!
