Remember when newspapers used to have cut out and keep recipes? Well, now you can have a whole vintage recipe book made up from them. Historic Newspapers have just launched a new range of Vintage Recipe Cookbooks. Each book showcases all kinds of different recipes & cookery ideas. They are a really cool way to get a bit of history and recreate some iconic recipes from days gone by.
These newspaper cook books are perfect for any foodie. You even get slice of history with every page. Inside the books, expect to find landmark food news, (such as the implementation of rationing) recipes and popular food options from selected decades. There’s also the appearance of famous celebrity faces who are still followed today. Each printed page has been reproduced from an original, genuine newspaper article. No embellishments or alterations allow recipients to see other news articles from the same day the recipe was published.
The books are available in both softback & hardback versions. The hardback version comes bound in a purple cover design and features intricate, gold embossing on the front. Both options can be personalised with a recipient’s name and a personal message. There’s also the option to have the recipient’s name embossed in gold on the front cover of the hardback design. Articles inside the books appear in black and white, with decade options starting from the 1930s up until the 1990s.
Kevin Sears, e-commerce director at Historic Newspapers, said “Food has always been a hot topic in terms of press. We’ve designed this book to help reignite memories from the past through our sense of taste and smell, transporting us back to a time we thought was forgotten.”
