This one-of-a-kind book is upcycled from a vintage 1955 edition of "Meta Given's Modern Encyclopedia of Cooking, Volume I" by Meta Given. I have included 16 pages from the original book, interleaved between 60 blank sheets of off-white paper. There is some major damage on the back cover - see last photo.

This would make a great gift for a cook, chef, baker, or anyone who loves vintage cook books!

The blank paper consists of 60 sheets of acid-free, 25% cotton, 24 lb. off-white paper, which is smooth enough to write and sketch upon easily. It's all bound with a sturdy, wire coil binding that allows the book to lie flat. Measures approximately 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (including wire binding). The book's covers show some wear, which is part of the nature and character you find with a previously loved, recycled book.

The perfect book for use as a recipe journal or scrapbook, or to fill with brilliant ideas, doodles, secret thoughts, spontaneous sketches, dream journal, keeping score on game night, travel journal...?
