M-C D's new book is an 'absinthe primer' suitable for the coffee table...nice cover, photos, but no more(in fact much less) info than her new 'son histoire'...i think this was created to get her more exposure than her other books which are too hard to find and to explain a little more about modern trends...

There is a new book called "Epicurean Collectibles" published by Southern Living. It's a big glossy art book about antique dishes and bar ware. There is a short chapter on absinthe with beautiful stylish photos of spoons, glasses, fountains, and a very beautiful silver spoon holder stuffed with a variety of spoons. Some turn of the century absinthe posters can be seen in the background. Check it out just to see the dazzling photos. I found it in Barnes and Noble book store on Broadway at 82nd st.

The cover reminds me of those glossy "On the Cocktail/On the Cigar"-style books so popular a few years ago. When you have a chance, Ted ... how is the photo quality?
