November 2, 2011The Graphic Wonder of Campbell’s Wonderful Ways With Soups
By now, most of you know about my obsession with vintage cookbooks. I collect them. I cook out of them. I blog about them here and on the Mid-Century Menu. Some of them are good, some hilarious, and some are disgusting. I have some of each kind.
But something I’ve recently started paying attention to, and really starting to love, are cookbook illustrations.
These fun illustrations are from Campbell’s Wonderful Ways with Soups from 1958. Even though some of the food doesn’t look that great (Savory Spaghetti Casserole or Pineapple And Tomato Upside-Down Cake anyone?) but I think these illustrations are downright delicious.
Eyelashes? On veggies? Genius.
I love the circle-heads on these kids. Very reminiscent of the Campbell Kids by Grace Wiederseim
I need that beverage set!
I am pretty sure this is my favorite one.
Or maybe this one! A rabbit! With starbursts!
What a happy family!
These illustrations belong to Campbell’s, not me, so please do not reproduce them! Thanks!
