old school taiwanese carton boxes

when you’re in a place where everything is new, your senses become attuned to all kinds of things that you normally don’t pay much attention to — manhole covers, street signs, the shape of benches, or all the different fauna and flora. 

in taiwan, i was kind of fascinated by the old-school designs of the produce boxes we sometimes found in streets, piled in corners or stacked behind food stalls, each with the drawing of its contents. illustrated bitter gourds, cabbage, tomatoes…. 

i don’t know if the contents actually match the drawings, but they’re still beautiful to look at and admire their variety.
