About 33 Books Co.


33 Books Co. is Dave Selden's one-man publishing operation based in Portland, Oregon. That's me in the video above!

I produce books and "tasting maps" that are designed to let people quickly take down the important details of their favorite consumables: beer, coffee, wine or whisk(e)y and lots of other good things.

A unique “flavor wheel” is included on all my books and maps. It provides a quick, visual way to describe a product’s flavor (and recall it later). A simple color meter in some of my books allows you to remark on visual characteristics. Other design elements (checkboxes, silhouettes, etc.) further speed up the process.

"33" brand books are designed to be inexpensive and highly portable. They easily fit in the front or back pocket of a pair of jeans and are thinner than most mobile phones. They’re printed on 100% recycled paper using US-grown soy ink that includes a few drops of real wine, beer cheese, milk … which changes from edition to edition.

The books and maps are available online or at select retailers around the globe. If you'd like to sell "33" books or maps in your store, please contact  .
