Description
The biscuit tin in Great Britain—the package of traditional tea biscuits or cookies—has long been an exercise in specialty packaging, with elegant or elaborate designs intended to enhance the ritual as well as the prestige of the brand. As such they represent a marriage of commerce and art in British popular culture, and are avidly collected. This revised 2001 edition of a 1976 collector's guide (which had itself become collectible) presents hundreds of decorative, imaginative, and frequently beautiful examples in 421 color photos, including Queen Victoria commemoratives, racing cars with rolling wheels, and a rocking horse tin with a rounded, rocking bottom.
