Art of the Flour Sack

This collection of thirteen handsomely designed flour sack prints are from the State Library of New South Wales in Australia. They were screenprinted onto separate sheets, possibly to be used as test prints prior to printing them onto the paper bags. The charmingly simple lettering is all accomplished by hand. Simply charming! 


  1. Great flour sack prints, I especially like the 3rd and the last one, but all in all - all of them are really well designed...

  2. I don't know if I'd buy flour that came in a "Wombat Brand" sack, but I'd certainly wear a t-shirt with that design. The birds are gorgeous.
