“Looking at Cookbooks Seven Centuries of Visual Feasts”

Thursday, February 18
Bryn Mawr College
Carpenter Library B21

This talk will offer a feast for the senses, revealing cookbooks as more than just functional manuals for the kitchen. Cookbooks are also aesthetic objects that convey important cultural information, and the progression from text-based recipes to today’s lavish
illustrations mirrors the history of typographic design. For their often-irreverent takes on the culinary arts, artists’ cookbooks will be a special focus.
