We LOVE vintage cooking, retro recipes, advertising cookbooks and the fascinating stories they tell. Cookery books are about SO much more than food - for generations, women relied on them for advice on how to run their households, care for sick babies, please their husbands, get their clothes cleaner, and squeeze more meals out of a pound of meat. Sometimes the books seemed to come alive, providing comfort during times of war and economic hardship, such as when Betty Crocker proclaimed "Hail to the women of America!" in a pep talk about stretching wartime food rations in her 1943 "Your Share" cookbook. Whether you enjoy the social commentary, the stunning graphic art and retro advertising images or are simply searching for old-fashioned recipes and homey comfort foods, we've probably got a cookbook to satisfy your appetite!

Softcover booklets and paper items are packaged in acid-free sleeves with backing boards for preservation, ready gift giving and secure shipping to your door. In addition to the high-quality cookbooks and other vintage goodies, I offer you my personal attention and speedy, efficient service. Welcome to The Vintage Cookbook Maven - enjoy the succulent selections!
