Andy Warhol. We all know him for his Campbell soup cans & pop art but I’m discovering some of his other works little by little. Am particularly taken by my most recent discovery – these sweet illustrations of cakes:
These drawings by Warhol and recipes by his friend Suzie Frankfurt were a whimsical take on the haute cuisine cookbooks of the 1950s. The book never quite took off in the end and were just given out as gifts to their friends. Funny how that happens, I mean…look at people like Mozart, died a pauper but revered for centuries after. Bet the friends were pretty happy though, each framed page is now worth $30,000 a pop. Nice.
As an avid baker, I absolutely adore them. We all need some whimsy in our lives.
