There were six categories for competitors based upon the "luxury" of the packaging, its destination, its versatility (returnable or collapsible), and the type of materials used in fabrication. Winners are listed and identified at the end of the text. Stapled pamphlet (27 x 18.5 cm); 51 pp. with over 30 illustrations from photographs.
Original paper covers printed in colors on upper cover; soiled, nicked or dog-earred in places on cover and, to lesser extent, internally, but text not affected.
