A collection of 100 postcards featuring the covers of cookbooks from around the world

Curated by Penguin Books’ U.K. art director John Hamilton, Cookery Postcards from Penguin is a lovely set of one hundred postcards featuring striking cookbook cover art. Hamilton has delved into his amazing collection of nearly one thousand cookbooks to carefully select the most memorable and exciting pieces of art. The result is a potted history of book jacket art over the last sixty or so years—the classic, the witty, and the inventive—and the perfect gift item for foodies and design fans.
