Another kind of cookbook.
For a couple years now, as evidenced by this old English
cookbook, or this old French
cookbook, or this even older Italian
cookbook, recipes have been conveyed with language. Fitting with our age of copious visual information, Katie Shelly has made a cookbook using just illustrations. Eat your heart out.

Browsing at my local library, I just came across a display of the winners
of this year's Canadian Awards for Excellence in Book Design
I was blown away by the design and content of The Gryphons of Paris
, a limited edition collection of black-and-white photos of surpassing beauty. This led me to the web page of the photographer, Ronald Hurwitz
, his city vignettes and remarkable portraits. A good reminder that not everything
of value can be found on the internet.
