It covers a range of items from biscuit and toffee tins to packaging for toiletries and everyday household products, to tins commemorating special occasions such as royal weddings and seasonal tins for Christmas.

LOVE old advertising. Haven't used this book in years. Was into antiques and vintage items for years, but then it got harder and harder to sell them once online selling dropped off due to the economy, so I stopped. is asking me to review this book: TEN years later! I still own it, so I can comment here. Plenty of pictures and prices.Go buy the newer version. It is still a worthwhile book for those who wish to collect advertising tins. Not a big market for them anymore, but fun to collect and display.
