What hides behind the label of a wine bottle? Can such a small piece of paper transmit the essence of a wine which has been matured during long years? Behind the design of each label there nearly always lies a story.

Wine Labels by Index Book compiles an extensive selection of labels both from the past century and today. Wine bottle labelling occupies a very specific area in the world of packaging and it therefore requires great complexity in the message it purveys. Long years of work in the winery and its harvesting are all concentrated in a very delimited space. Both the bottles and the labels featured in the book are printed almost in real size for the optimal visualization of each label’s contents and its application on each bottle as a whole.

The cover is made using cork and is not only well considered, but it also feels great to hold. Simple, elegant and clever. Get a copy.
