Vintage Recipe Pamphlets
I've always loved these little books of retro goodness. Food suppliers would produce these booklets featuring the use of their specific product(s). It was a genius marketing tool and continues to be today.
Over the years, a few vintage baking pamphlets have made their way into my collection of cookbooks. I love the retro look of the 50's and 60's (ahh, my youth!) and when a particular booklet would catch my eye, I have not been able to resist adding it to my small, but wonderful collection. Knowing of my "retro-love," my friends have also contributed to my stash.
I love the iconic images, the typefaces used, and have actually found a wonderful recipe or two! Take a few minutes to page through the article. It's a great look back at time spent in the American kitchen!
