I just published my first book! Well, it’s a family cookbook, but that still counts.
The theme is “surfaces.” As I was going through all these old family recipe cards and photos, I noticed the physical media had a lot of character to it: tattered edges, food stains, etc. I decided that going through the cookbook should be the same experience as if you had the cards splayed out in front of you on the kitchen counter as you prepare to cook. I did the layout and compositing work in Adobe InDesign and used Adobe Photoshop to key out backgrounds around the edges of scanned media and touch up recipes for legibility.
