    While, I’m not an avid collector- I’m a loyal beer drinker and this book looks awesome next to all my mixology and cocktail titles. The creative direction is impressive, the photos are worthy of framed artwork and I never get bored flipping through it. I plan on getting my Dad and brother copies too.

    While I can see how this book would not fulfill the need of those avid collectors looking for a book to fill their particular niche – mint examples of obscure cans – it does do what it claims to do quite well. “Beer” is a portrait of a single collection with the focus less on obscurity and more on aesthetics. From a design perspective this book is nearly perfect – a collection of well shot graphics spanning, more or less, the better part of the 20th century. Beautifully laid out, “Beer” also presents a bit of history to support the photos. If you’re a seasoned collector this book is probably not for you. However, for the designers out there who happen to love beer – or even those of you just looking for something nice to have on the coffee table – get psyched.

    I’m not some serious beer can collector at all, yet I always appreciate beautiful vintage stuff. That’s exactly why I adore this book. This book really shows off vintage art and design from old cans. I’ve never seen cans with cute goats and pumpkins illustrated on a beer can. The photos of the cans are big and gorgeous. The variety of the images is also great. I see some talk about the rust as a negative thing but I, as a non-collector, think it actually reveals part of the natural beauty of vintage cans.

    They’ve got small interesting stories about some cans, which gives the book more warmth and personality.
