The Initiates

Item Details

Etienne Davodeau is a comic artist - he doesn't know much about the world of wine-making. Richard Leroy is a wine-maker - he's rarely even read comics. Yet these two, in the spirit of good will and curiosity, asked: why do people choose to spend their time like writing and creating comics or producing wine? To answer this question Etienne went to work in Richard's vineyards and cellar and Richard, in return, leapt into the world of comics. In this beautiful adventure, the pair realise that they both have the precious and necessary power to bring people together.

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.
