the type kitchen

As some of you know, this is a project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. My sophomore year at RISD, I designed a cook book of my family’s recipes. I was 3000 miles away from home, in a dorm with no kitchen. My typographical chops have significantly improved since then, and now, I have a real camera, and a real kitchen with a gas stove. I don’t have any excuses to put this off anymore (except that my laptop is too old to run InDesign, but that problem will be fixed soon).

So, before I start actually redesigning the book itself, I get to cook my way through the first edition and photograph all of the dishes. Edition One is purely typographical, with some iconography, but Edition Two is going to be full bleed images and step by step photographs. If you like cooking, check out my newest adventure, the type kitchen. For now, it’s a cooking/recipe blog, with a lot of pictures. When I start designing the book, I’ll post my typographical explorations and paper testing there too. You can watch the project unfold, and you can cook along with me.
