This Folio sized, lavishly illustrated book focus on absinthe’s regained worldwide popularity. Absinthe never really went away just went underground. The volume gives a brief history then in great lengths covers the modern subculture ranging from the hardcore old school absintheurs to the Hipster/artist element in Europe. Slightly biases on the brands covered. It is a good introduction never the less to the legalities and culture around the modern version of “the Green Fairy”.

I am into Absinthe now. As a matter of fact, I just had a glass, and I'll be participating in the Absinthe soiree in New Orleans in July. I met Ted Breaux while hanging out in the Pirates cafe www.winecology.com and had my first sip of the drink with him, his partner, and the bartender. This book is a good one if you want some history, and as an understanding of the difference between real Absinthe and imposters.

An interesting review of the history of absinthe, famous makers and drinkers, famous crazy people (absinthists), advertising, cultural impact, and present day information. I think I may need one of those advertising posters....
