Item Details

Winner of : Gourmand Magazine Best US wine book translation Slate Cartoonist Studio Award nominee A graphic novel that explores the nature of one's vocation, this book offers a look at the daily devotion to craft in two dissimilar professions. Étienne Davodeau is a comic artist--he doesn't know much about the world of winemaking. Richard Leroy is a winemaker--he's rarely even read comics. But filled with good will and curiosity, the two men exchange professions, and Étienne goes to work in Richard's vineyards and cellar, while Richard, in return, leaps into the world of comics. Providing a true-life representation of how both professions work, this insightful book investigates two fascinating fields, exploring each man's motivations and ultimately revealing that their endeavors and aspirations are not much different.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Providing a true-life representation of how both professions work, this insightful book investigates two fascinating fields, exploring each man's motivations and ultimately revealing that their endeavors and aspirations are not much different. (Nick's favorite)

I loved this chronicle of two men switching jobs in the vineyards of France. A brilliant concept book and sensitively executed. See what it's like, in immersive panels, to practically do it all from soil to bottle.
