(this is the latter, as it was easier to assemble)
a short-run batch of local maple syrup, served up prohibition style in a vintage italian style glass flask with a flip top wire cap. each bottle (1/60) is hand- lettered with its batch and bottle number, then wrapped in 1920s era newspapers. a leather-cord letterpress hang tag drapes the neck, accompanied by and offset book telling the story of “Little Orphan Annie’s” bar. (which was the original saloon at Camp Wandwega during the bootlegging days)
shown here: the Wandawega locals bellied up to the bar.

the book also includes a handful of recipes to make with the maple syrup.
accucolor press (on division in chicago) cut the notecards that we used for the custom rubber stamp…
(the hangtags are made of a super heavy board, letterpressed) and the booklets themselves are saddlestitched French paper in an antique white linen finish.
the lettering was done with enamel markers
each bottle was wrapped ‘headline out’
