Victorian Patent Medicine’s, reimagined as a range of flavoured vodka infusions, prescribed for the treatment of various ailments. The recipes are taken from the 1875, third edition of “AN ILLUMINATED PRACTICAL NOTEBOOK of the NOSTRUM REMEDIUM (Patent Medicines, Compounds & Formulae) of DR JOHANNES van der CHAARDVARK” (a quack), published by Frederick Bentley & Co., Shoe Lane, Fleet Street, London.
There were a series of eight infused vodka recipes in total, each presented with their own serving suggestion.
The book itself has been visualised along the lines of Mrs.Beeton's Cookbook including vintage style illustrations of the ingredients, alongside the method of preparation.
Services supplied: graphic design, branding, product development, art direction, packaging design, recipe book design, page layouts, photography, typography and illustration.
