Simplified Cooking and Invalid Diet

Meighn, Moira, Author,
Faber & Gwyer Ltd. - London, Publisher, 1928

This cookery book for invalids by Moira Meighn was published in 1928 and aimed to 'provide Doctors with a book that they can confidently recommend to Nurses, Mothers, and Housewives needing a ready-to-hand collection of recipes and advice on cookery based on the most up-to-date principles of dietetics'. It includes an index. The designer of this book has used cross stitch to create a new text for use on the cover. By using cross stitch, the designer has used its associations of homeliness and comfort to plant similar ideas in the reader’s mind.
