belly up. (the final product)

and… here are the final bottles.

tucking a hand written note card into each bottle wrapping.

(without the card)

each bottle is wrapped in a different newspaper day / headline, all on the topic of prohibition.

this one has a story of Jack Dempsey the heavyweight boxer…

…this one tells the story of a saloonkeeper breaking prohibition laws by offering bribes…

…it was easy to find articles about crime & politics during that era.

found some with stats on babe ruth (one headline reports that he’d lost 6 pounds.)
