Not what you'd expect judging from the cover. 3 Mar. 2014

For the price I paid ($4 - used copy), this book isn't all that bad, but I guess I was expecting more graphic design from 60s through the 80s, and instead found more recent works. There's a plethora of designers featured, but the section on packaging design was really bland.
Let's just say that a good 65% of this book features the same kind of bland vector-ish illustration that can now be found all over the interweb.

Not sure what I expected but, whatever it was, this isn't it. I guess what I wanted was inspiration from a different source. I got inspired by maybe 3 pages.
