Sake Labels

Japanese rice wine, or sake labels have bold designs decorated with pictures of crashing waves, strong calligraphy letterings, gildings and whatnot. When you look closely at these sake labels, the designs are all so typically Japanese and there just seems to be a certain special feeling about them.

Not to mention the fact that they give me a wicked craving for sushi...

Check out PingMag's presentation of some of the better packaging designs for Japanese Sake Lables and some nice explanations about Japanese typography.
