Upcoming Tuesday Talks

The Art of Illustrated Cookbooks

    Tuesday, November 15, 2016 - 10:30am

The days of food photography began around the 1950s, now photography is all we see in cookbooks. But before that time, fine art and illustration was the only way to reach bakers and cooks with anything visual. Those beautiful images, many of them worthy of exhibits in an art museum, are still available to those who search them out. Authors of "Tempt Me: The Fine Art of Minnesota Cooking," Linda Koutsky and Kathryn Strand Koutsky, will talk about the history of fine art and illustrations in pre-photography cookbooks.
