The Secrets of Pistoulet

23 Jun

This is kind of like a kids’ book for adults, which is why I’ve included it in this scrapbook. It’s really interactive – there are little recipe cards you can pull out, scrapbooky images, cute little hand-drawn illustrations and details around the pages.

It’s very much a gifty book. It comes in a little sleeve with a window cut into through which you can see a black and white image of a woman looking through. This design reflects the story of the book: it’s inviting you to take a peek into a magical and whimsical world of french country houses and comfort food.

The typesetting’s not always super-sleek but I think that’s OK for this book. It’s kind of quaint and personal feeling, so the images and the hand-drawn aspects of the design are its appeal.
