We’re still living in the retro age, where capturing different elements of bygone eras is celebrated as one of the major signs of "hipness" and post-modern behavior, making the timing perfect for artist Gail Anderson’s interest in all things unusual. 

As an artist, Gail Anderson worked for Rolling Stone Magazine as their Senior Art Director, but as a hobbyist, Gail Anderson has a collection of retro bottle caps interesting enough to transport you back to a more innocent time in the United States.

The vintage bottle caps in Gail Anderson’s collection tell a story of product design change. Many of the bottle caps in her collection feature little slogans and look just like the time capsules they are. Today’s bottle caps may be more technologically and environmentally advanced, but they certainly lack the style and character of these throwback bottle caps. Click through our gallery to see how as an artist, Gail Anderson’s vision of what is beautiful is entirely non-traditional, and how that benefits the viewer.
