A notebook with a handprinted linoprinted cover inspired by and created on the Isle of Islay, off the west coast of Scotland.

Islay, our island home is famous the world over for its whisky. Home to 9 whisky distilleries; Ardbeg, Ardnahoe, Bowmore, Bruichladdich, Bunnahabhain, Caol Ila, Kilchoman, Lagavulin and Laphroaig. The copper still is a vital part of the whisky making process. Within the copper belly of the still, the wash is boiled creating alcohol vapours which collect in the narrow ‘swan’s neck’ of the still before being condensed into strong alcohol. Stills are made from copper, the sulphur from the fermenting yeast reacts with the copper on a molecular level making the whisky taste smooth and not bitter. Different shapes stills create different flavours, giving each whisky a distinctive taste. This still was sketched and then carved into Lino using a fine tool, then each still has been individually handprinted onto this notebook.
