We’ve been told not to judge a book by its cover, but what about its photography, layout, typefaces, paper—and how they all interact with each other? Each week, we’ll be sharing a book spread that’s worth taking a close look at for one reason or another. And we’ll ask you: What do you think about it?

Today: The Silver Spoon books don’t have illustrations—except this one.

What happens when a classic cookbook without illustrations becomes fully illustrated—in comic form? Take fifty Silver Spoon recipes and teach people how to make them in panels and you get Chop, Sizzle, Wow. It’s a new kind of recipe, one that relies on images more than text. It makes us wonder:

  • Would you cook from visual recipes? Have you (and how’d it go)?
  • Do you find this approach easier or harder to cook from?
  • Does it only work with simple recipes?
  • Who is the audience for this book?

Let us know in the comments!

Thanks to Kitchen Arts & Letters for letting us borrow this book.
