A yearlong project to make something, about something Norway students thought were interesting. So Christer Dahlslett decided to write and design a book about whisky. Something that he experienced during this project is that he gets more confident when drinking whisky.  So the concept for the book is built around that fact. He split the book in 3, and the design in each reflects the increase in confidence while drinking.

  

The design in the first book is done with hand drawn illustrations and traditional etching print. Which gives it a rough look, illustrating Christer’s starting point when drinking whisky. Second book is slightly more confident with his own watercolour brushes and textures. The last book is made with vector graphics to illustrate Christer at his most confident.

  

The cover is handmade with plywood that is laser cut, dyed and stuck together. It is inspired by the wooden casks whisky is matured in.
