One of my favorite cookbooks is this 1961 edition of Amy Vanderbilt's Complete Cookbook, with drawings by Andrew Warhol.
While the book has seen better days, and many of the "household" ideas put forth seem a bit archaic these days, the line drawings of various foods, preparations and place settings are very fun to look at.
Many older cookbooks include menu planning for parties and helpful hints.
Here are a few of my top choices from other Vintage Market Team members.
|Hors D'oeuvre from ismoyo|
|Polish Cookbook from ILoveDandelions|
|Fresh Vegetables from ZinniaRidge|
