We’re excited to announce the debut of Sprudge Publishing, a new imprint from the makers of Sprudge. Our first title, due out in just two weeks, is Eileen P. Kenny’s Birds of Unusual Vitality Vol. 2, a compendium of interviews with leading coffee personalities accompanied by photos shot on glorious Kodak Portra 120 film with a Hasselblad 500C camera.
Birds Volume 2 features interviews with Sean Bonner, Tim Wendelboe, Ricardo Zelaya, Jose Aguilar, Erin McCarthy, and more, with foreword by Peter Giuliano. Eileen P. Kenny is the founder and editor of Birds of Unusual Vitality, and a Sprudge.com staff writer based in Melbourne.
Birds of Unusual Vitality Volume 2 is designed by Aaron Maxwell of Everyday Coffee, and will be printed in Melbourne by Moule Print. The book’s launch coincides with the 2014 Australian Aeropress Championship at Filter, happening on Friday, May 16th beginning at 7pm. Join us at this event for music, the pressing of Aeros, and to pick up your copy of Birds Vol. 2 signed by the author.
In the coming weeks look for more information on distribution for Birds of Unusual Vitality Vol. 2, with select copies available for retail at fine coffee bars in Australia and North America. In the meantime, there’s a brand new article up today at Birds Of Unusual Vitality’s website, an interview with the environmentalist, journalist, and coffee enthusiast Simran Sethi.
This is Sprudge Publishing #001. Look for more projects from Sprudge Publishing in the coming months.
