Vitamin C overdose

I've just rediscovered a collection of tissue orange wrappers I used as research for a student type design project. They were collected while on a trip to Barcelona's La Boqueria market.

The designs are printed using a rubber plate so as not to damage the tissue. The printing quite often goes out of register so each wrapper is slightly different

I have about 30 wrappers which compared to Eric Bradshaw's collection of 2,797 is a drop in the ocean.

Have a look at those I've uploaded, I like the way the printing glitches, and simple design coexist to produce such lively packaging
