A Collaboration with Julie Qiu

Julie is an international oyster sommelier and founder of the seminal In A Half Shell oyster blog, based in New York City. Her passion for oyster appreciation is contagious, and when she reached out with the idea for an oyster journal, I jumped at the chance to collaborate. Julie's work has been featured by The New York Times, Food + Wine, Saveur, VOGUE, and Somebody Feeds Phil on Netflix. She established the Oyster Master Guild in 2023.

Designed for Speed

A flavor wheel inside lets you note a oyster's unique flavor in a quick, visual way.This oyster journal is designed for ease of use. It’s tough to hold a notepad in one hand, a pencil in the other, and have another hand left for your freshly-shucked C. virginica. Taking notes with 33 Oysters is as simple as checking a few boxes and entering a few basic facts.

The flavor wheel in 33 Oysters can be used to quickly recall an oyster’s unique flavor long after consumption. For low values of the flavor, fill in dots near the wheel’s center.

Secret Ingredient

A teeny, tiny amount of oyster liquor is added to the ink in each new edition, which is cryptically noted on the back.


33 Oysters is made with 100% recycled papers sourced in the Pacific Northwest. Interior pages are 100% post-consumer recycled content and covers are 85% post-consumer recycled content and 15% recycled content. The booklets are printed using US-grown soy-based inks in sunny Portland, Oregon.

Printed on recycled paper in Portland, Oregon with soy inks.
