Designer Comments

I felt this was a wonderful execution for the nature of the book and a great personal touch of the title in chalk on blackboard as is so frequently used in kitchens today. Inviting and relational (not intimidating) and a ‚”pick me up‚” kind of look and feel cover for the subject matter of this book. Gritty matte finish plays off the grittiness of the actual blackboard.

Judge Comments

Flowing typography framed by a delicious and interesting border of colorful food helps this cover pop off the shelf.
