Summary note
"David Craig has collected the most striking and exotic luggage labels from around the world. These miniature works of art were used for decades by first-class hotels to identify their guests' suitcases and trunks and then by the guests themselves to display their itineraries to the world. Here, reproduced in full color and actual size, are over 100 beautiful labels representing a wide variety of graphic styles dating back to the last century."--Jacket.
