Bookshelf: A Vintage Cookbook

From one of automaticsweetheart's Flickr streams -- a sampling of some of the wonderful illustrations by Ruth McCrea from Simple Italian Cookery, a vintage cookbook automaticsweetheart purchased from a library cellar for 25 cents. She's now thinking of framing them and hanging them in her kitchen. These are seriously groovy. Via Flickr: the mid-century illustrated pool.

They really are striking! Framing them is a great idea.

i love it. i actually have an old children's cookbook from the 50s ('Fun to Cookbook'). it's so adorable. i remember trying to make the brownies and learning how to pack a picnic and cut a grapefruit. :)
