A new book, Viva la Pizza!: The Art of the Pizza Box, celebrates a medium that most of us have overlooked as an art form.

On the contrary, the pizza box is largely considered an item to be immediately discarded once it's contents have been savored.

The book's author, Scott Wiener of Serious Eats, has been collecting unique pizza boxes for nearly seven years. His current collection totals over 600, making him the Guinness World Record holder.
Since the origins of to-go pizza, pizzerias and pizza chains have taken great pride in covering take-out boxes with captivating designs. They’ve also wrestled with the best way to manufacture a box that can keep a pizza looking and tasting great.

Here, the world’s expert on pizza boxes presents more than one hundred weird and wild box designs and explores the curious history of the pizza box. Included are international designs, corporate designs, and dozens of quirky images from mom-and-pop pizzerias.
Here's a look at Wiener's pizza box collection:
