coralie bickford-smith great food covers

by Grace Bonney


In my book (no pun intended), Coralie Bickford-Smith can do no wrong. She has consistently designed some of the most breathtaking book covers on the market and continues to make it look effortless. Although I know it’s not. Coralie has a stunning new collection of book covers that are part of a series called Great Food that is due out this April. When Anne told me about them yesterday, I immediately pictured them living in our new kitchen. They’ll be as beautiful to look at as they will be to read for food inspiration.



While looking for some more info on the series, I found a post on the great book and design blog The Casual Optimist that said the covers are based on ceramic styles from each book’s time period. I love that idea and think it’s such a clever way to tie the decorative details of the book into the content. You can view the full series right here on Coralie’s site or check them out online here and here. Thanks to Anne and Coralie for the tip!
