Entry Description: Livraria Cultura is the largest bookstore in Brazil, and in celebration of its 65th anniversary a range of gift packaging was developed for CDs, DVDs and books. The gift packs revive vintage medias based on the products bookstores have sold commercially over the past 65 years, but with a contemporary twist that leaves consumers playfully wondering, Is it packaging, or is it an object?. Drawing parallels not just between itself and the product, but also between the store and its history, creating an innovative concept that breaks away from traditional commemorative editions.
