It’s really about the coffee

These days I spend an inordinate amount of time on my coffee roasting obsession. When I’m not researching green beans to buy, I’m looking for books and articles on coffee in general. I recently stumbled on this unusual artist book about coffee. Florida artist and rapper Jon “Ditty” Didier’s artist book “Cocaine for the American Ambition: A Coffee Table Pamphlet” is a social commentary of America’s dependency on coffee. The artist book consists of images created with traditional and digital printmaking and text from an original rap song written by the artist. An accompanying CD recording of the song performed by Jon Ditty is included.
