FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY


BETTY CROCKER PICTURE COOK BOOK



VINTAGE RECIPE CARDS

With rounded edges and bright garish colors the Betty Crocker vintage recipe cards embody the beauty of food photography and illustration. The pastel glory! If you are interested in looking at more covers of books or actually inside one you can go to a thrift store or browse the flicker cookbooks group.

Here are a few artists who use food in their photography:

Nice stuff Cattharine. My freaky exGF used to collect those recipe cards with the disgusting 70's food. She always threatened to make some of the more gruesome dishes but never did. All hat and no cattle for the girl from Alice TX.

ha ya... Ive never seen that documentary.. Maybe I will soon enough.

also, I got this laura letinsky book thinking it was the food stuff, but it ended up being these portraits, very intimitate, between couples.. Which was great, but Very graphic.. ooof.
