A-Z Coffee

A-Z Coffee

A self-initiated authorial illustration project, both authored and illustrated by Lars K. Huse. A pocket-size illustrated art-book, a conversational guide about coffee, specialty coffee and coffee culture. It is aimed at filling the gap in a market overflowing with lots of purely informative, and at times frankly boring books. Stylistically sure-footed monochromatic spot illustrations provide a dialogue between text and image, and is carefully planned out within the layout and for the specific production process that is risograph printing on a delicate paper stock and its slight transparency. The book is of a very specific nature, and has been described by others as the first quasi- encyclopedia of third- wave coffee. A modest book with a low environmental impact, largely successful with international distribution, a contemporary classic in its own right.
