A look inside Christopher Durham’s New Book Vanguard: Vintage Originals

Velocity: The My Private Brand Conference attendees will get an exclusive preview of my latest book on private brand, Vanguard: Vintage Originals before it releases on Amazon on Monday, September 18th. The book will debut during the conference as I present the stories beyond the more 125 photos of the vintage private brand packaging at Velocity: The My Private Brand Conference in Charlotte, NC on September 13-15.

With images from award winning photographer Teri Campbell, who also shot the photography in Fifty2: The My Private Brand Project, from more than 30 retailers including Sears, Kroger, Safeway, IGA, Ace Hardware and Piggly Wiggly. Conference attendees will have the opportunity purchase a copy before it goes on sale.

Immediately following the presentation Teri Campbell and I will sign books. Attendees can then walk through an exhibit of the packages from the book.

With a little more than twenty days until the conference, I thought I would tease you with a few of the images. Join me in Charlotte to get your copy of the book
