One day last winter I received a voicemail from Egg and Dart Press, asking me if I wanted to illustrate and design a book of 50 vintage cocktails. I tried to keep my cool but I couldn’t stop smiling for days. The timeline was really tight and I had more than a few moments of panic… 50 illustrations about cocktails? At times I felt I couldn’t possibly think of one more concept involving alcohol! We didn’t want a mediocre book with a few gems thrown in so I really tried to make each page as interesting as the last.
I love this book, not only because of the way it came together visually, but also because of the delightful writing style of Stephanie Rosenbaum. Now that it’s all done, the only appropriate way to celebrate is with a cocktail in hand, right?
