— The Great Food Series – Penguin

These lovely ornate book covers have been around for a number of months now, and most will already be familiar with them… but for those that are not I felt they were certainly worthy of a mention!

Designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith, the slender, textural volumes are obviously beautiful items in their own right, but the subject matter of the series is also fascinating, focusing on the history of food through 400 years of civilisation, from Mrs. Beeton recipes to 18th-century pub menus.
