Introducing Cipe Pineles's delectable work in food and art to a new generation.
Not long ago, Sarah Rich and I discovered a painted manuscript at an antiquarian book fair: It was the work of one of the most influential graphic designers of the twentieth century--Cipe (pronounced "C.P.") Pineles, the first female art director at Condé Nast. Completed in 1945, it was a keepsake of her connection to her childhood's Eastern European food--she called it Leave Me Alone with the Recipes.
With Pineles's illustrated cookbook and a section of updated recipes as its centerpiece, this gorgeous volume will delight foodies and design devotees alike.
