The Germans have high standards in bookbinding, and I always admire their focus on quality and long tradition in book arts.
After all, Germany was the birthplace of Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press.
This 2012 pasta book project certainly impressed me – A 10-page cookbook by Gerstenberg Publishing in Hildersheim (Is this the town with the famous cathedral?).
Meticulously prepared by a bookbinder, it combines the art of the book and food to astonishing effect.
The “pages” are imprinted with instructions, and it comes in a box.
Truly a “cookbook” — you cook it and eat it. Who wouldn’t be inspired?
Letterpress people should try this!
