- Sweat, Lick and Spit
- Prairie Oyster
- Tripe Soup
- Kterfruhstuck

I researched existing hangover cure books and found a gap in the market. There are not many books that encourage a good hangover cure, especially for students. This means my publication will be different to other cookbooks or recipe books.

I looked on Behance to find any design work related to hangovers:

I found that there wasn't much out there to contextualise my project, in terms of similar products, only recipe and cookery books as previously researched and noted. This leaves me in a good position to design and produce something new and different which will appeal to my target audience.
