Our collections review goes slowly into the final. Now we have here collection of packaging.
Packaging is a product by itself. It suggests what is inside, it is an integral part of the product. It encloses and protects it. In collecting packaging is then often a precious relic, which only evaluate the actual artifact's value. Empty boxes from the various products foreshadow their presence and symbolize their intangible intellectual value without themselves.
