The Cookbook Tree of Life Letterpress Poster

The Cookbook Tree of Life Letterpress Poster

Submitted by Norman Clayton

Creative Statement: This 7 color poster was created for culinary historian and acclaimed author, Anne Willan. Featuring a letterpress printed reproduction of a watercolor by Keith Cranmer, it visually displays the development of cookbooks through four centuries and six languages. The challenge I had was to design a beautiful poster, communicate a complex overview of cookbook writing in the shape of a tree and reproduce Keith’s watercolor with delicacy.
