Desserts by Pierre Hermé

Desserts by Pierre Hermé

Little, Brown and Company, Boston, Massachusetts, 1998

Description

The book is set in the modern version of a classic French typeface, Didot. Unusual photography, where exquisite desserts are combined with props like plastic forks and paper plates, inspired the playful treatment of the recipe titles. The basic recipes and dictionary of ingredients are printed on uncoated stock to emphasize their utilitarian function and to draw more attention to the featured recipes.
