COOKBOOK north/south launch >> this Mon 29 Nov


COOKBOOK north/south is a not-for-profit publication, letterpress printed by hand, with a limited edition of 500. Craft Victoria is proud to be hosting the launch of this fabulous labour of love (which is socially conscious too!)

Here's a bit about the project:

COOKBOOK north/south features an inquisitive exploration of ten of Melbourne’s suburbs via recipes, original artwork and short stories. Facilitated by the designers at Wolfgang, Shlomo & Max, this collaborative project is a platform for Melbourne’s chefs, artists and writers to personally and creatively interpret their city.

COOKBOOK north/south’s eclectic array of contributors give life to this humble publication. Contributors were asked to find inspiration in their suburb and creatively interpret their surroundings. Whether internationally renowned or local gems, chefs were chosen via suburb research, word of mouth and SecondBite recommendations.

Each of COOKBOOK north/south’s ten suburb-inspired chapters feature a lino-cut artwork, short story and three recipes. A unique collection of letterpress forms, typography and colour create the visual identity for each suburb chapter. An unbound publication, COOKBOOK north/south comprises of hand printed individual cards, first offset and then letterpress printed at the Melbourne Museum of Printing.

Join us this Monday 29 November at Craft Victoria between 6-8pm for the publication launch where you can purchase the book for $100 (cash please!). All profits will go towards Secondbite.
