Hong Kong Apothecary

HKApothercary.jpgA Visual History of Chinese Medicine Packaging
ISBN: 1568983905

Hong Kong Apothecary collects most compelling examples from manufacturers, shops, and home medicine cabinets over many years. Divided by type – such as ointments, herbal teas, infused oils, the fascinating graphics and tantalizing descriptions of hundreds of medicines gives us an insight into Chinese customs afforded only by examining the artifacts and customs of everyday life. Many of these medicines are no longer produced, making this book a memoir of a quickly disappearing culture. This lavishly illustrated book is of interest as much for designers seeking inspiration in the unknown vernacular of commercial graphics as for anyone interested in Eastern medicine.
