In Packaged Toronto, readers are taken on a journey back in time to the period between the years 1870-1950 to witness the emergence of Toronto’s aesthetic through detailed photography of local package design.
The Canadian graphic design identity that emerged after the Second World War has become a celebrated national cultural treasure. Yet there is very little known about the work and history of 19th- and early-20th-century graphic design in Toronto or Canada. Packaged Toronto contributors provide unique historical essays focused on this unrecognized era of Canadian design.
