Today's art book is a wonderful small volume called Feast (now sadly out of print) by the immensely talented Maria Vettese and Lena Corwin--who publish books by themselves and other artists under the imprint Lines & Shapes. This is one of those books that flips over and tells a different story, in this case in images, from each side. So one half is photos by Maria of sumptuous various dinners (first two images below), and the other half is pictures by Lena of a sweet dessert party (third and forth photo below). It's exactly the kind of real-life food photography I just love. Also tucked inside is a sheet of paper with relevant recipes from each photo essay (couldn't get a decent photo of that to save my life, so you'll just have to imagine it). Oh, and the book comes in a little slipcase sleeve. The whole thing is just utterly charming and pleasing to me. See for yourself--
