French Cooking for Everywoman
Viardot, Gilbert, illustrator,
Country Life - London, Publisher; Charles Scribners's Sons, Publisher, 1930
The modernist movement had a huge impact on all aspects of art and design. In this cookery book, a bold diagonal lay-out is used with a block-like, sans serif font. The book is trying to impart an air of sophistication by teaching French cooking and the cover reflects this aloof aspect with, what is for a cook book, an unusually minimal cover.
