Its content encompasses the story of the Chichibu-Kikusui, Hanyu, Chichibu distilleries and the Akuto family.
A chapter is dedicated to the complete Playing card series and how it started. Here, each bottle is the 'objets d'art', occupying a full page. Opposite page contains Ulf's 58 tasting notes, technical descriptions and the flip side of the bottles.
All 58 bottle pictures are from Ulf's own Playing Card Series collection. Other sections comprise the series aftermath, auctions, rules and data, fakes and frauds.
