Curated by Penguin Books U.K. art director John Hamilton, Cookery Postcards from Penguin is a lovely set of one hundred postcards featuring striking cookbook cover art. Hamilton has delved into his amazing collection of nearly one thousand cookbooks to carefully select the most memorable and exciting pieces of art. The result is a potted history of book jacket art over the last sixty or so years — the classic, the witty, and the inventive — and the perfect gift item for foodies and design fans.
One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the story of the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendia family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad, and alive with unforgettable men and women -- brimming with truth, compassion, and a lyrical magic that strikes the soul -- this novel is a masterpiece in the art of fiction.
