More or Less
May 13, 2016
This is one of my favorite cookbooks; I’ve had it since 1969 when the Hammermill Paper Company sent it out as a Christmas present to publishing customers like my father. It is, I think, fairly rare; I can only locate a couple other copies.
The two volumes – each exactly the same number of pages – were meant to show how different a book would be depending on the paper selected. The More Cookbook is almost twice as hefty as the Less Cookbook.
Beautifully designed, with great illustrations by David Levine….
it’s written in a wry tone
and contains remarkably sophisticated recipes.
Tomorrow, a few gems from the Less Cookbook…

Wow, these are so cool to look at! Thank you for sharing them. I look forward to seeing the less version. What hidden gems….
What a neat set of books and cookbooks to boot. Have to admit I am not rushing out to get any eels. What a clever concept. I’ll bet you’re glad you hung onto them.
