5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know! 23 April 2009
This book is great for anyone studying graphic or product design, it has everything you could ever need!

This book consists of 168 packaging nets, each comes with an image of the finished piece to show what it will look like. It comes with a disk, that holds all of the nets. It allows you to resize any section of the net,add parts or take them away.

The book is broken up into seven sections, so it is simple to find what you are looking for-

-Regular Boxes
-Display Packaging
-Tear open Packaging
-Dispensers
-Carriers
-Bottle and Tin Holders
-Special Shapes

It has traditional nets that you would see day to day in packaging, but there are others that are more complex, but they are l worth trying as they look fantastic. Every shape you can think of, this book has it!

It is a great book to have and has helped and inspired me whenever I needed it.
Brilliant buy!

Thanks for reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars For special applications 25 Oct 2009
There is not an awful lot to read here:
There is a short introduction in eight languages, then you can go straight to folding structures!
On on side you will find the patterns and directions for folding, on the opposite side you'll see the finished box.
The CD is very helpful to avoid the tedious copying of the patterns.
"How to fold" from the same series might be sensible.
But for all who want to make a special packaging this book does not bear one excess page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth It 25 Mar 2007
By Andy
Verified Purchase
A very worthwhile book. I have others in the series and would advise that you search them out on Amazon. The book, a weighty tome, comes with a CD with the contents of the book in vector images for both PC and Mac to allow you to size/modify the drawings to what you need. Well worthwhile and very promptly delivered.

4.0 out of 5 stars great resource 18 Oct 2009
By bloo - Published on Amazon.com

it's a great resource that i haven't used yet, but simply having the the dielines is helpful for concepting & prototyping. i think this would be a great book for anyone who is interested in packaging and wants lots of dieline files on hand. a lot of the special packaging samples seem to be very intricate or ornate. typically i prefer fairly simple design/construction that is purposeful. the other two books in the series: how to fold & package design are also great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Practical 30 Mar 2008
By M. Bushell - Published on Amazon.com
I remember my library only had one copy of this book and everytime i needed it, it was gone! It was very hard to find because people would run to it to question forms and solutions that could apply to their proyects and the fact is, that it is very useful as a guide. It doesnt have any graphics at all because every design is meant to be generic, leaving every graphic solution to you. The book provides the designs in vector form in case you may need them, but personally i use it as a reference because i dont think the cd is provided to make money of it really..It is a great book to learn from if you are entering the packaging world and would like to profund your knowledge on form basically.
