Par ici, la bonne cuisine by Jean Baches

I made a little trip across the continent to only a few of my favorite places on earth and I tried to pick up something from every place. This one came from Paris. It’s a fun book titled “Par ici, la bonne cuisine” illustrated by french artist Jean Bachés. Not sure if the inside is by Bachés but what stuck me on this was the collage on the cover. Here’s another example of Bachés work »

Victoria Cruises Booklet circa 1960’s

Here’s a fun little Victoria Cruises by Incres Line booklet. I was mostly drawn to the illustrations on the outside as the inside is a bit different. I did include one inside shot for the curious ones. I don’t know much about this except for the fact that this was printed in Italy. If anyone has any clues, let me know. Enjoy!

Happy Holidays!

And lastly, here are the holiday cards I designed this year. I will be taking a break from the blog until next year. Happy Holidays everyone!

Bette Hackett Alumination Magazine

It’s time for the holiday blog post. Here’s a fun issue of Alumination Magazine with cover and feature story designed by Bette Hackett (couldn’t make out the signature completely) put out by Eureka Metals Supply Co. The fun illustrations are a mix of paper cut and other materials with painted illustrations. The story is quite fun too, it talks about why Santa choose the reindeer. So there you have it, enjoy another Christmas with this Mid Century illustrated  gem!

Starting with Sterling circa 1959

Here’s a fun 8.5″ x 11″ booklet put out by the Sterling Silversmiths of America, N.Y. titled “Starting with Sterling, a project book for students”. It’s some sort of interior design guide on how to choose silverware based on the type of interiors you have etc. It’s filled with fun two color illustrations and type. Designer / Illustrator is not credited. Enjoy!

Short cut to dinner with Osterizer

Here’s a sun little recipe booklet by Oster, Osterizer (John Oster Manufacturing Co) Winsconsin. The illustrations look very familiar but I can not piece it together. No credit or year listed but for the look of it I’m going to date this to the 1950’s. Enjoy!
