Vintage Cook Book Covers

October 17, 2012

A couple of months ago I blogged about Vintage Children’s Book Covers and whilst I was creating that post, I came across the idea for this one.

I’ve previously talked a little about the work of Tom Funk and Joseph Pearson who both illustrated beautiful books for Betty Crocker. Here’s more from the 1950’s and 60’s. Enjoy.

I like this image of the bear patiently waiting in line for his BBQ share.

At this chilly time of year the illustration below for Bennett’s Vitamin Enriched Soup is perfect.

Recipes fit for a king or at least the Fox family !

If you have any similar images from Joseph Pearson or Tom Funk or someone else I’ve not mentioned and you’d like to share them, post me a few and I’ll assemble them.

All this thought of food is making me hungry !

      Hi Taelina, not sure which book in particular you mean but you would have to look on the usual sites i.e. Abebooks, Alibris, Amazon, Betterworldbooks, Etsy and Ebay for somewhere to begin. Happy Hunting : )
