The Art of Cigar Smoking
As a member of cigar clubs, forums, Facebook and Twitter and a group of old guys on Avenue Road in mid-town Toronto, I am getting around these days in the cigar smoking world. As a graphic designer with a particular interest in package design, the cigar bands on these little devils has not gone unnoticed.
Here are some of my favorites.
From top left:
Aroma De Cuba, Nicaragua; Zino “Chubby”, Dominican; Cohiba Behike (pronounced BeHeeKay), Cuba; Opus X, Dominican; La Aurora 107, Dominican; La Aurora Preferido Cameroon, Dominican; Bolivar 1895 (non-Cuban), Domincan; AveMaria, Nicaragua; AVO, Dominican; Davidoff Moduro, Dominican.
Why so few Cuban entries you may ask? For this posting, they just did not have the artful labels.
