Vintage and Retro Cookbooks: Links and Artwork
Thursday, September 14, 2006
Here's something fun and fabulous that one of my fellow lensmasters has created over at Squidoo: a page that features artwork from vintage and retro cookbooks and that provides links to online cookbooks dating from the 1400s to the present. As anyone who has read old cookbooks knows, they were much more than sources of recipes to women in generations past. They often contained etiquette pointers, diet tips, and other information considered essential to the day. That's why they are so much fun to look back on -- plus you can always hope that you'll luck out and stumble upon the ultimate recipe for cream cheese, pineapple, raisin, carrot, and gelatin salad.
