Charming graphic illustrations and delicious photography make Here Design’s Plenty More cookbook for Yotam Ottolenghi a real treat

With TV chefs aplenty, the cookbook market is a pretty crowded place these days. Most follow a pretty tried and tested formula with a portrait of the chef in question on the cover and the standard ‘food porn’ shots inside. With its previous publications such as Bocca, Ceviche and The Geometry of Pasta, however, Here Design have consistently pushed things into more interesting territory.

 

Its latest collaboration with Yotam Ottolenghi, Plenty More (Ebury Press), is no exception. The cover features graphic illustrations of various pots, pans and dishes (see top) picked out in a spot varnish. The illustrative approach (by senior designer Sakiko Kobayashi who designed the book with Caz Hildebrand) continues on the chapter dividers inside.

 

 

 

 

 

There is photography, of course, but Jonathan Lovekin‘s images are exceedingly enticing

 

 

 

 

 

Here Design, incidentally, has just shown the first collection of products from a new sister company Ink Works, featuring British made furniture, tableware, signage, and lighting. “The range [named Cognition] is inspired by the mechanics, machines, equipment and skills of Britain’s makers and embodies the spirit of makers and manufacturing processes,” Here Design/Ink Works say.
