Wrappers Delight catalogues the amazing lifetime collection of John Townsend, a man who collected the most disposable of wrappers: sweet cigarette boxes, wax gum papers, empty bags of crisps, drink cans, rock labels, stamps, transfers, coupons, recipe cards, tickets, odd boxes, badges, cards, stickers … and more.

 A nostalgia trip through the sweet wrappers of our childhood that also serves as a cultural and historical document. Presented in alphabetical order by manufacturer, this publication containing over 500 full colour examples, is the first and only overview of the drinks and confectionery industry during this period.

With a foreword written by Jarvis Cocker.
