The Water Of Life – A Book About The Manliest Drink

This is a handmade wooden cover I made for a book I wrote
and designed about the world of Whisky. The project was a part of my Graphic Design study.

The cover is inspired by the charred wooden casks the whisky is matured in. Its made by carefully laser cutting plywood and dyeing it with different shades of oak color.
The engraving and wood dye gives the cover a smokey alcoholic smell which brings back memories from drinking the finest single malts. Please enjoy!
