About this Item

Folio. (39)ff. From an edition of thirty copies, this is one of ten deluxe copies in a stunning designer binding of full white pigskin. At the center of the spine extending over both covers sits an acrylic-painted bowl of chili, garnished with spicy sour cream and peppers, and sprinkled with gilt-stamped flecks. The covers have been blind-stamped in a crosshatch pattern to mimic a white linen table cloth, and a spray of gray paint extending out from one side of the bowl evokes the shadow cast by the bowl's rim as the chili is enjoyed outside on a sunny, summer day. Orange paste-paper flyleaves complete the spicy presentation. British artist David Esslemont works step-by-step through his award-winning chili recipe using thirty-nine multicolor woodcut images showing both ingredients and cooking methods. Every part of this gourmet dish is made from scratch, from the ancho chili paste to the vegetable stock. The artist advises: "If you don't understand my pictogram instructions, use your imagination. Good luck and let me now how it turns out." Prospectus and newspaper clipping announcing the artist's chili cook-off win laid in. As new in cloth drop-back case. Bookseller Inventory # 25879
