This year’s cider label:

At the risk of being blunt, it kind of felt like polishing a turd:  Jack did the center artwork, but he did it more at my request than of his own initiative, and even he wasn’t really thrilled with it.  Nor did he have a clear motivation behind it.  Head still stuck in Halloween I guess.

He did decide he wanted the addition of a back label, though:

For those of you who aren’t parents (or librarians), the text content is a direct paraphrase of the Flip-o-Rama “incredibly graphic violence” disclaimers from Dav Pilkey‘s Captain Underpants books.  Another thing we never seem to get past…

Anyway, it’s good to have the bottles labeled, and the cider is strong and tasty.  Empress, your display bottle is ready…
