Remarkably Retro

Art Deco Cookbook Covers, 1920s

Cookbooks by Ida Bailey Allen; Cover art by Carrie Dudley

I found these three gems in a box of old cookbooks that were going to be thrown away. Apparently the author Ida Bailey Allen was quite a celebrity in her day. Each of these cookbooks is about 7.5” square and 60 pages long.

(Each book has a silk hanging cord that I carefully removed to get a better scan of the amazing art deco covers. You can see the two holes near the top of each cover. I reattached the silk cords after scanning.)
