The Art of Cooking

The Art of Cooking book created for Editorial Concepts class. Vintage recipes paired with over the top photographs by Maurizio Cattelan.

Maurizio Cattelan is known as a provocateur and prankster. He has created some of the most unforgettable images in recent contemporary art. While he is widely known for his hyperrealist sculptures, he is also known for his publication “Toilet Paper Magazine” which he founded in 2010 along  Pierpaolo Ferrari.

Along these pages, you will find the most mesmerizing, inexplicable and extravagant images that the magazine has published throughout the years. The vivid colors, as well as the contemporary yet vintage feel that the photos give inspired the recipes that fill the pages.

During the research for this book to come about, I was looking for vintage recipes and found recipes from the 1970’s that were as uncanny as the photographs that fill the pages of this book.

Filled with vibrant colors, and foods that will make you question the eating habits of other people, keep turning the pages to enter a new world of mesmerizing images.
