During a recent Wonder Weird staff meeting someone asked: what is something odd that inspired you? One writer admitted the box art to blank VHS tapes was interesting to him. I have to say I agree. I am sure many of you remember blank VHS tapes that you used to tape your favorite shows, events and whatever was on at the time. Do you remember what the boxes looked like?

The art on the boxes had a real abstract/ modern look to them. Many of the boxes would have the main detailed element in the center of the box with the name brand on the top and the length at the bottom. Some boxes had more designs than others, a few just had a solid color with writing on them. The boxes had some really great design work on them and makes us wonder if some of the art seen on these boxes in the 90s helped inspire the artists that we see today
Lets take a look at some VHS covers:
