At last, here is the compendium of cigarette packs that collectors have been waiting for! Joe Giesenhagen has compiled a fantastic collection of cigarette packs dating from the 1880s to the present, in all colors, shapes and sizes. See the incredible diversity of character in cigarette packaging over the past century, and the amazing creative effort some companies exerted to make their cigarettes appear exotic, luxurious, colorful, feminine, masculine, festive, or even medicinal. This book includes color photographs of over 4000 packs of cigarettes to accompany in-depth listings of Merchants & Vendors, Factory Numbers, Merchant Code list, up-to-date pricing information, anecdotes of the industry, and much, much, more. Cigarette packs are a great field for collecting, with a huge diversity, availability, and price range. This book is an excellent ground-level entrance for anyone looking to begin a collection and a valuable resource for anyone in the process of building one.
