When photographer Charles Button named this guide, he couldn’t have been extra literal. The Artwork of Whisky doesn’t communicate to the chemical development and craft of spirits, nor does it contemplate bottles or label art work, as every already enjoys quite a few volumes of printed commentary. As an alternative, it presents the patterns of assorted whiskies as they kind on the backside of the glass, held up at numerous angles underneath complicated lighting preparations. The outcomes kind stunning items which bear resemblance to summary artwork, trendy album art work, or high-resolution microscopy photos generally present in scientific journals.

To Button’s credit score, he has enlisted legendary Scotch ambassador Charles MacLean to supply participating liner notes, and Howard A. Stone, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton College, to ship an informative overview of the fluid dynamics of whisky (or: why is it we’re seeing what we’re seeing?) In equity, whereas each had been extremely accessible and interesting reads, it was a problem to maintain consideration with out eager to commute between pictures and textual content to see the reasons unfold visually.

It’s arduous to not get misplaced, or try and emulate, this magnificent work on this guide (my modest try was not profitable by any stretch). If we had been to run a characteristic on Finest Books for 2022, this is able to simply relaxation on the prime of my listing. It is likely one of the greatest visible paperwork fusing artwork, nature, science, whisky, and know-how that I’ve but to come across.
