The Kraken

I know that this has been around for a while now - but when I was at the liquor store the other day, I actually saw this bottle and my love for the kitschy, stylized and beautifully-designed packaging just came back - so I wanted to share.

I'd been looking for a good sea monster for a while - I always joke that if I were to get tattoos, they would all be nautical themed (ships, mermaids and sea creatures) and I've always been fond of my dover clip art books and taschen images. When I saw The Kraken, designed by Stranger&Stranger in the UK, I just knew that it would be love:
