How to Drink

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2010

The brief was to design an illustrated book with a modest budget. After reading the book with its stories and tales intertwined between recipes, it seemed important to us to think of an unusual way to articulate the text. From the start we favoured the idea of an alternative approach over the more conventional colour photographic route, which was in any case too expensive.The illustrations for ‘How to Drink’ were created using old wooden type that we set and printed. The textured quality achieved in woodblock printing gives character and warmth, which makes the illustrations feel lively and distinctive.
