There is a story behind the IPBA logo, and the bottles that were selected to appear, and the collection interests that they represent.
Our Young Collectors’ Coordinator, Joanne Begert, has put together a beautiful pamphlet explaining the history of our logo, with interviews with the original designer, Rod Baer, and the graphic artist behind the logo with the actual bottles and color, our own atomizer specialist, Shari Maxson Hopper. She wanted to educate our Young Collectors on the meaning of the bottle selection and teach them about those specific collecting areas. I think you will agree that we all can appreciate the effort she made as you browse through each page.
