This book is a collection of menus designed specifically for Chez Panisse. Menus were created in a variety of formats, which explains the larger trim to accommodate one, two, or three menus. Curtan includes wonderful anecdotes (about the restaurant, the people, the food, the occasions celebrated by the menus, and the process of designing and printing the menus). The book ends with an illustrated look at Curtan s process (press, type, design, linoleum blocks, etc). Also, samples of linoleum blocks are scattered throughout the book.
