Cafe Cocktails

Art Direction: Soonduk Krebs
Illustration, layout

With so many beautiful photo filled recipe books out there, I wanted to write one that put more focus onto the written content. As a manual, it felt more relevant to display cocktail recipes, and with coffee being one of the most consumed drinks in America, I ended up with a book on alcoholic drinks that all use espresso and coffee in their recipes. This handbook also involves lessons on how to make coffee with a french press, espresso with a stove top boiler, and much more. Featuring a screen printed cover and spine, hardbound, and heavy on contrast. The illustration style is reminiscent of coffee shop chalkboards, and the lockups on traditional liquor packaging, with handwriting referencing the name writing on a cup.
