if you have looked at more than one post here in this space, you probably know that my tastes run pretty eclectic. as much as i enjoy modern and contemporary art and craft,Â i’m also aÂ big fan of mid-century style, so i was grinning ear to ear when i saw these great vintage cookbook illustrations on ward jenkins’ fun blog.
every time i look atÂ drawings from this period, i totally imagine that i’m one of the people in them. everyone looks so cheery and carefree — especially that girl in the green dress sipping a sweet tea!
more of lou’s artwork on ward’s flickrÂ photostream.
dig deep into the interweb, and you might just find the original cookbooks for sale.
