Cookbook for Linzie
I found this cookbook on a shelf in a dusty old factory. The Esquire cook book for man was published in 1955 by McGraw Hill. The book is illustrated by Bill Charmatz. He did a couple of 4 color partition pages and a ton of 2 color illustrations that alternate the spot color as the print form changes. Bill's illustrations have a great mix between humor and graphical whim that keep me entertained up to this day. Bill Charmatz died last year at the age of 80 years. He graced the magazine and book world with his illustrations for a half a century. The Society of Illustrators is hosting a memorial show in his honor this December in New York City.
