The Geometry of Pasta4th June 2010
A few days ago I received an e-newsletter from Amazon showcasing some of their bestselling books including the recently published ‘The Geometry of Pasta’. Judging a book by it’s cover I thought it would be a lovely piece of information design about the many different pasta types but I never imagined it to be a fully functioning cookbook. The graphic approach is unexpected and simple, yet so successful in it’s concept. Author, (Michelin starred chef) Jacob Kenedy educates the reader on the benefits of using specific pasta shapes with complementary sauces in over 100 recipes, and also introduces a brief history of each type of pasta featured. Caz Hildebrand, Creative Partner at Here Design, designed the book which has been printed entirely in black and white, using simple vector illustrations an understated typography.
