Vintage Cook Book Typo Research



Thursday, August 20, 2009

” This Emily Post cookbook from 1951 is one of my favorite finds ever. The design, typography, and illustrations are amazing; the entire thing is letterpressed; the recipes are simple; and all the content is so entertaining and filled with tips for “proper” etiquette and manners. I could probably read this cover-to-cover and enjoy every minute.

One of my favorite lines (there are many) might be, “If when fishing you should catch an eel, don’t throw it away.” Good to know.” beautiful bus passes from the 1940's
