“THE INITIATES is One of The Best Books About Wine I’ve Ever Read, Period.”
There’s a reason why we’re especially enthusiastic about our latest release, The Initiates: A Comic Artist And a Wine Artisan Exchange Jobs by Etienne Davodeau.
Page45.com sums it up rather succinctly;
“This is a fantastic work which illuminates just how similar the approach to being successful in any artistic field is, really. Yes, you need talent and an eye for your subject, yes you need hard work to produce the goods, but you also need passion.”
Hard work and passion truly are two of the cornerstones of creativity, but this book resonates even beyond that.
Our headline comes from a review from Jameson Fink, a name likely unfamiliar to comic readers, but wine connoisseurs know. He is considered one of “The 9 Most Important Wine Bloggers in the US” and his site was a finalist for the 2012 “Best Overall Wine Blog.”
He recently reviewed The Initiates on his site and had this to say:
“The Initiates illustrates the rewards of remaining curious and thoughtful when it comes to your life’s work, and what you can learn from others by listening and observing. Sometimes it may involve pruning shears and a vine; other times, a pen and paper. For anyone looking to break out of their personal and professional comfort zone, The Initiates is a well-illustrated inspiration.”
