- The cookbooks of the 1920's are known for their amazing cover illustrations and simple recipes. I love these cookbooks for the sweetness of them. Beautiful hand drawn illustrations can be found between the pages. If your lucky enough to find any with information regarding WW1 they are always desirable and quite rare but more about wartime cookbooks in the section about the 1940's.
Vintage Cookbooks are for everyone who has ever wanted to bake something special and turned to a modern cookbook and realized they never seem to have all the ingredients at the same time, there're for history lovers that want to feel connected to the past in a way that's missing in history books, there're for the people that love that musty old book smell and laugh at kindle's, they're for people that feel like we as a society have gone a little too far, a tad off course with life and want to get back to the simple and the real, and they're for the people that want to pay homage to all the grandma's and great aunts that did it best!
