Andy Warhol, Cookbook Illustrator

In a reminder that everyone has to start somewhere on the road to greatness, The Crossett Library Bennington College has made several of Andy Warhol’s illustrations available on its Flickr account. The illustrations were done for Amy Vanderbilt’s Complete Cookbook in 1961 and run from mundane meat cuts and placesettings to the rather more fanciful hors d’oeuvre tray below.

I think my grandmother had a copy of this cookbook as I recognize the dustcover, but I have no idea which family member might have it now…wouldn’t she have been surprised to know she had it in her kitchen all these years!
