Coming in September 2009 from Rockport Publishers, Really Good Packaging, Explained focuses on our favorite form of eye-candy: product packaging.

This cover is actually metallic silver with a brown ‘belly-band’.  (What’s a belly-band? It’s pretty much a paperback slipcase that is open at the top and bottom, allowing it to slide on/off the book with ease).

This book is the sequel to Really Good Logos, Explained and has the same premise: four top designers critique hundreds of designs and explain- in six sentences or less – why they work. The result is a fascinating study of package design, from the folks who know this subject well.

Below are some of the beautiful spreads within this book:
