Bibliophilia: The Initiates: A Comic Artist and a Wine Artisan Exchange Jobs – Etienne Davodeau

A book that meshes bande dessinée and viniculture. It documents the year that Davodeau spent working with wine-maker Richard Leroy. At the beginning, Davodeau knew little about how wine is made and Leroy knew almost nothing about comics. Over the course of the year, the pair talk with wine-makers and artists, and walk each other – and the reader – through the process of making a bottle of wine and producing a book, as well as the why behind each of their respective professions. The result is a fun and educational book about art and passion and what it means to work and live.

This gives a little blurb about it and shows a few pages.

And it is also a book to show to anyone who hasn’t yet grasped that “comic books” can be about so much more than superheroes.
