I spend a lot of time looking at cat food labels so I can stay on top of all the latest information on feline nutrition, so it was a refreshing change to spend some time looking at cat food labels purely for fun. Cat Food for Thought: Pet Food Label Art, Wit & Wisdom is a charming little book featuring cat food art from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.
The cute labels are paired with quotes and snippets of wisdom, making browsing through this book a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I also found the book fascinating from a branding and marketing perspective. The vast difference in style between today’s pet food labels and the labels pictured in this book makes you realize how much our world has changed over the last fifty years.
This little book will equally delight cat lovers, pop culture fans, and anyone with a love of graphic design.
