A Book for Cooks

A Book for Cooks

The book covers the design and illustrations for 101 cookbooks covering a 400 year time span. Having an illustration on the cover meant we could link our cover to all the illustrated cook book covers that had gone before without singling out a specific one. Chloe's particular interest in the kitchen and everything related to it made her exactly the right artist for the book, and a mix of monoprints and coloured pencil led to a vibrant result.
