Technicolor Adventures at The Library
I think if I could have a dream part-time job it would be to curate a Tumblr for my local library system. One of my absolute favorite things to do is to just wander the stacks at the library, discovering things in odd places–if it’s vintage, so much the better! My local library has many incredible vintage books in their small selection and I found myself lost in the cookbook section, where the technicolor imagery had my mouth watering–not for food reasons, but aesthetic reasons. I mean who can RESIST the mountain of crayfish pictured above?? Not to your taste? How about mysterious egg dishes or stuffed tomatoes!
Oooh la la!
Or how about the sad chocolate mound man? “Please don’t eat me,” he cries!
Or a salad garnished in Nasturtium and radishes? Mais oui!
Speaking of dessert: How about a green frosted Autumn Festival Cake to KICK OFF THE SEASON? Who can resist? Who??
I don’t know why these kind of images make me happy–I haven’t figured out what to exactly DO with them, but they thrill me to no end. They are just so BRIGHT. Occasionally, a girl just needs some color in her black and white comic world. Can you dig?
