Esquire Cook Book

Rummaging through the cookery section in a second hand bookstore at the weekend this little beauty stood out a mile. Aimed at the modern 1950's man, The Esquire Cook Book features recipes, articles and over 200 examples of mid century illustration wonderfulness from Bill Charmatz. The care and attention that's gone into producing it all is fantastic and makes you feel more than a little embarrassed and depressed about the state of the "just wack a picture of the latest reality stars arse" publications aimed at men these days. 

You can see more illustrations  here if you like.
