This book transports us to the exotic world of Chinese Medicine -- a world of saan (powders), yun (pills), gou (plasters), dann (pellets), etc for every known ailment. These forms had a direct influence on the materials, typefaces, patterns, and compositions used in packaging. It documents contemporary changes in the packaging of Chinese patent medicines and stores since the mid-19th.
