Raise a glass to Masaomi Fujita's deliciously illustrated Introduction to Sake

in Inspiration / Illustration

An Introduction to Sake is a delightful handbook designed and illustrated by Masaomi Fujita for a sake seminar in New York by Iinuma Honke, a Japanese brewery that wanted to better educate bar and restaurant workers about the drink.

With information on its history, its ingredients, its manufacturing process as well as instructions for how it's best served and what food it goes well with, the pocked-sized guide aims to make anyone an expert on sake.

Masaomi explains: "Although people tend to think drinking Japanese sake requires special knowledge, this handbook shows the attractiveness of sake through clear and concise sentences and illustrations to promote more understanding. It's a compact A6 size visual book, which is the same size as a postcard, can be easily carried around wherever you go."
