Recipe book food illustration, hand typography and cover design
National Trust Book of Afternoon Tea
I illustrated this recipe book- The National Trust Book of Afternoon Tea, celebrating historic National Trust recipes. The brief was to illustrate traditional afternoon tea recipes with a British summer garden feel.
I designed the type for the cover in my own hand-typography, illustrated double page chapter headings, the cover and spot illustrations.
You can find the book at your local National Trust shop as well as most local book stores. For more work in this style please see my style guide.
Beautiful illustrations of vintage teacups, cakes and china accompany the recipes. The food illustrations are watercolour and digital illustration with chalky pencil crayon and textures overlaid in Photoshop.
