1958 Graphics in Packaging AIGA (Call for Entries and Entry Form), 1958. The American Institute of Graphic Arts, New York, USA. Designed by Gene Federico.

Rare. The 8-panel, Accordion fold “Call for Entries” is approx. 28 x 9 (flat) and printed both sides in full color. The Z-fold “Entry Form” is 10.5 x 9 (flat) and printed single-sided in red ink. The Call for Entries and Entry Form text includes: Announcement; Requirements for entry; Deadline; Entry and hanging fees; Categories; Committee; and Entry Form line items. See detailed credits at AIGA Design Archive

“Aware of the rapid growth and importance of graphics as a most vital phase of the greatly diversified packaging field, the AIGA organized its first packaging show in 1956. Because of the increased emphasis being placed on packaging by modern industry, Graphics in Packaging Show 1958 will present the whole range of packages varying in size and end purpose — from ampules to industrial drums.” Furthermore “The show will present a selection made by a jury of experts whose choice will be based solely on design, presswork and typography. Only end results as a graphics solution to a problem will be considered.”

A stunning, modern announcement in near fine condition; well-preserved and still bright. This original item was included in my book, The Moderns (pp. 181).
