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.
There's an interesting short Q & A session with cartoonist Gerald Scarfe in the Guardian today. Scarfe draws caricatures, political cartoons, album artwork and designs for opera, film and theatre. His designs for the 1979 Pink Floyd album The Wall are published this month by Gloria as a limited-edition box set.
