The Field Guide to Drinking in America

The Field Guide to Drinking in America (Overcup Press, 2015) is a guidebook to the drinking laws of the fifty US states and the District of Columbia. For this project I researched state and local statutes relating to alcohol sales and consumption, then developed concise summaries of those laws. These short surveys provided the factual backbone of the book and complemented Niki Ganong’s warm and funny essays about drinking culture in each of the fifty states. The book was designed by option-g and copyedited by Cheryl Frey.
