Jamie Brisick – 4.6

We Approach Our Martinis With Such High
by Jamie Brisick
Consafos Press

Jamie Brisick is a true renaissance man. Ex-pro surfer turned ex-editor in chief of Surfing magazine, Jamie has figured out how to make a career of traveling the world, taking photos, drinking wine, and writing. He recently took some time off his travels to piece together many of his photos and stories in a new book only Jamie could have named: We Approach Our Martinis With Such High Expectations.The book has a loose structure and is strewn with portraiture and candid beach-type photos interwoven with text, both typed and handwritten. The final product is a sort of window into its creator’s mind-simultaneously intelligent, beautiful, and odd.Jamie’s publisher sent me a copy of WAOMWSHE a month or so ago, and I’ve had it on my desk where many people sit down and fish around for something to gawk at. It’s been so thoroughly perused, the spine is now broken. Everyone who looked it over had a strong reaction to it. Some loved it, others hated it. Doesn’t that seem like reason enough to own it?You can get a copy at amazon.com or by contacting the publisher at consafos@earthlink.net
