A vintage book treat….
I have been working my little writer butt off lately, so thought I would reward myself by buying a little treat. I was browsing the internet and this little gem appeared before my eyes. It’s a kitsch 1950’s cookbook in mint condition with the most adorable illustrations.
I was surprised when I received the book and all these little hand typed recipes and letters spilled out, along with a photo of one of the contributing chefs. You can feel the dent of the typewriter keys on the papers and I admire the carefully typed notes on personalised letterhead. I know I wouldn’t be able to write without spellcheck and my good friend the delete button!
The book and these little notes have somehow travelled through the years and across continents to reach me and I feel very lucky to have them in my hands. I may even try some of the recipes!
Do you have an old book that you treasure?
