M & S continues to produce some fantastic packaging. We bought a few items last week – and thought we’d share photos with you in case you haven’t seen any of it.
We’ll start with this pizza box for the pastrami pizza – with its New York cop and stetson-wearing tourist.
The characters are very reminiscent of Miroslav Sasek book illustrations from the 1950s & 60s.
The other products we picked up have much more of a British feel – perfect for this Diamond Jubilee & London Olympic year.
These chocolate teacakes are covered with Union Jack bunting & flags. What does that pigeon know that we don’t?
Next up we have the old red telephone box.
It’s harking back to the days when telephone box queues were a common sight – pre mobile phone days – the variety of characters each waiting their turn.
We just love the punk rocker blowing his bubblegum.
It’s a close run thing, but our favourite item of the batch is probably the biscuit tin below. Again, the artwork is very Sasek inspired – with a bit of Bill Charmatz thrown in.
The design a real classic with scenes of the British Isles to the sides and traditional London sights to the lid.
Also, the tin will last years and can be used over & over again.
It’s fantastic when you buy a useful & beautiful storage tin – crammed full of lovely biscuits that you just have to eat first!!
