My Family Recipes Cover for (you got it) family recipes!)

Ok, it's taken me some time to figure out what I wanted to create. For a long time I wanted to make a booklet for cherished family recipies. Since they are memories of the 50s and 60s I want to use that time and style for the cover.

Something like these. I like the fisrt one but with without the lady in it. The images in the second one are great. I would draw my own.


I'm a sketcher and I create outline drawings and will use them yellow area. Maybe like these sillouettes.


That's my research so far. I notice that era uses a lot of condenced type and script.



lastly so far I really like these blue food drawings

Now after a little more looking in my own large cookbook collection I am going to do the writing part as its all in my head now. I have some family utensils that I can draw and the favorite foods in mind.

I intend to fill the book with illustrated family recipes ala They Cook They Draw books.

Here is a drawing i did of a hand mixer which shows a style I'm interested in using. I've found a typeface I am likeing too.
