    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I don't like the cover. I think it looks silly - like the bourbon is carbonated or something. However if you look at the dust jacket as a whole you will see it is bourbon being poured into a glass.

    I am sure the Press would talk to any German publishers who are interested.

    I was just wondering which brand of bourbon was chosen, did you have any input, or is it simply stock photography? Since you're not pleased, what would you have preferred for the cover? I personally enjoyed every aspect of your book, and felt it was one of the most eminently informative histories that I've ever encountered. You are a fine historian and writer. Thanks for this gem.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I was presented with the cover with no input at all. I don't know the bourbon used or even if it is bourbon. I would have preferred something more historical such as the one of the labels from the Miller scrapbook used in the book or even the Clark capps photograph of the barrel with the guager's tools also used in the book.

    Wow, that stinks! You would think that as the author you might at least get to offer an opinion. Oh well, kinda like bourbon its the contents that count more than the container!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I'll try not to judge the book by its cover.

    Thank you Lazer. I hope others have a similar opinion for picking the book and overlook the silliness of the fizzy bourbon.

    I assume that means books will be available for purchase there as normal at a book signing?

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.
