This text will truly open the eyes of every devotee, from the novice to the true addict, enticing all to explore the entire range of this twisted hobby.
Don Bull is a retired executive with an unquenchable thirst for corkscrews and corkscrew knowledge. In 1978, Don published his first book on beer advertising openers and corkscrews. He has over 4000 items from 20 years of collecting.
