  • This picturesque and interesting design publication presents stunning food-related books that showcase special editorial design, highlighting aspects such as layout, format, photography, illustration, typography, food styling techniques, and jacket design.

    This book features many successful cookbooks, and how they stand out from the crowd. The first part introduces an homage to the classic formats that many designers use, with clear, detailed explanatory notes covering format and layout (looking at both the culture- and brand- oriented styles), including emotional storytelling; photography and food styling; typography and typefaces; along with paper quality and finishes.

    The second part features a variety of creative and original formats not commonly seen, particularly specialized illustrated books, which could definitely attract more readers. Finally this volume presents several award-winning works, most of which are winners of the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. Each section devotes several beautifully illustrated and richly photographed case studies to give the reader more insight into the work and craftsmanship that goes into these stunning tomes
