Collectors will cherish this full-color exploration of the tobacco tin. Over 1000 tobacco tins are illustrated in full color, revealing the designer's and the lithographer's art. The tobacco industry in America was at the forefront of modern advertising and among the first to try to instill brand identification and loyalty in their customers. Consequently many of these tins are eye catching and beautiful. This is one of the reasons they are such popular collectibles. This book is the first full color reference on tobacco tins, featuring clear photography and the highest quality reproduction. In addition, it contains advertising and other ephemera which help to give an overview of the industry's attempts to reach its customers. The size of the tin is given, as is the manufacturer when known. An up-to-date price guide is included.
