Robert Opie has been collecting packaging, advertising and social history material for over 30 years. His collection now extends to half a million items; part of it was on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London in an exhibition entitled The PackAGE - A Century of Wrapping It Up in 1975. In 1984 he realized his ambition when he established the first museum devoted to the history of advertising and packaging in Gloucester. He has written several books on the subject of packaging and social history including Rule Britannia (1995), Sweet Memories (1988), The Art of the Label (1987), Packaging Sourcebook (1989), Wartime Scrapbook (1989) and 1930s Scrapbook (1997).
