Menu Designis an omnibus showcasing the best examples of this graphic art. With nearly a thousand examples, illustrated in vibrant color, this deluxe volume not only showcases this extraordinary collection of paper ephemera but serves as a history of restaurants and eating out in America. In addition to the menu covers many menu interiors are featured providing a epicurean tour and insight to more than a hundred years of dining out. Various photographs of restaurants round out this compendium that will appeal to anyone who enjoys the joy of eating out and its graphic and gastronomic history.
