I am designing an exhibition where I want to make replica (or vintage) Australian food packaging. Has anyone got a collection or a website which I can get reference material?
Personally, I'm not sure if there is anywhere specific you could get the information you need, but a quick Google search and Google Images search threw up some great hits.
I also found this site: http://www.vintagenostalgia.com.au/collections/vintage-packaging-si...
You might be able to track down the Curator of the National Museum of Australia's recent Glorious Days exhibition which included some great signage of foods and other products from Australia circa 1913. They might have some good reference materials from their collection.
