Everyone is hereby invited to party like it’s 1933.

The booklet was privately published sometime soon after the competition, presumably as a gift for V.I.P.s and those who had entered their tipples for consideration. Original copies are very rare indeed – it took me many years to find one for sale and it was VERY expensive. I commissioned my lovely local bookbinder Fraser at Unit 33 Studios in Bexhill to make a fabulous facsimile of the book.

Here’s the original, alongside the facsimile. By the way, although newspaper reports of the day said that only 2 women had been allowed to enter (Marlene Dietrich and Carole Lombard), Bebe Daniels managed to sneak in there too!

If you want to know more about the cocktail competition, I’ve written more about it here.
