Wrappers Delight

By Jonny Trunk. Edited by Damon Murray, Stephen Sorrell. Foreword by Jarvis Cocker.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Wrappers Delight.'

The sweetest memories of all: vintage candy-wrapper design

Compiled by famed nostalgia enthusiast Jonny Trunk (owner of record label Trunk Records, and author of The Music Library, Own Label and Wobbly Sounds), and with a foreword by Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker, Wrappers Delight is crammed with more than 500 examples of British candy-wrapper designs from the 1960s to the 1980s—the first and only overview of Britain’s drinks and confectionery industry during this period.

The book catalogs the amazing collection of a man named John Townsend, who collected candy cigarette boxes, wax gum papers, potato-chip bags, soda cans, rock labels, stamps, transfers, coupons, recipe cards, tickets, odd boxes, badges, cards, stickers and much more. All these items have been carefully documented, presented in alphabetical order by manufacturer and reproduced here in the highest quality. Among the confections and manufacturers to be found here are Cider Barrel, Cresta, Tip Top, Pacemakers, Lollygobblechocbomb, Kung Fueys, Fizz Bang, UFO sweet cigarettes and other TV tie-ins, Furry Friends and Fingammies.

This book will come as a delightful revelation (or a happy reminder) for graphic designers and nostalgia aficionados everywhere.

Jonny Trunk on 'Wrappers Delight' — it had to become a book.

Jonny Trunk on 'Wrappers Delight' — it had to become a book.

Featured image, a 1960 wrapper for Pink Panther Strawberry Flavour Pink Candy, is reproduced from Wrappers Delight, Jonny Trunk's edit (down to 500) out of thousands of British candy wrapper designs from the 1960s to the 80s, all hailing from the collection of Stockport, UK, hoarder / archivist John Townsend, who died in 2016, leaving a five-bedroom house "full of boxes, with boxes on top of boxes, and more on top of those," according to Trunk. "And there were bags everywhere. And all the shelves were full. And there were some rooms you couldn't get into. And the attic was full. And the summerhouse outside was full. And the caravan outside was full too. And on every inch of everywhere there was something… Behind a series of boxes and running into a tall, thin chest of drawers was a set of blue folders. These were all labelled with Dymo tape and were arranged in alphabetical order. Filed by brand was a collection of sweet-related wrappers. But not the usual Mars, Marathon or Milky Way packets—no, these were far more obscure. And far more exciting. There were companies I'd never heard of, chews I'd not seen for four decades — Dad's Army sweet cigarettes, Punk gum, Lolly Gobble Choc Bomb… This had to become a book." continue to blog
