I’ve been gathering the last of the wonderful Joe Pearson Illustrations from my 1961 version of Betty Crocker‘s New Picture Cook Book. Wherever in the world you are, you will appreciate these, for their wit, skill and visually descriptive ability.

        Yes please…. but only 1950’s or 60’s stuff like I post on my blog eg Roger Duvoisin and Helen Borten or cookery type books with these kind of illustrations. (You can type them into my search function on my site for a visual). I know you’re a good browser so fingers crossed you might find me a gem : )
