What is it?
A book of 100 herbs with contemporary illustrations inspired by modernist design. Now that ever more esoteric herbs are available in our supermarkets, our taste buds are becoming more and more cosmopolitan and we can benefit from a fuller understanding of the power of herbs. We can learn a lot about how to flavour our food, heal our illnesses, scent our homes and restore our spirits. The book gives one spread to each herb, with text on one side and a colourful illustration on the facing page. The text gives the history of the herb, information on how to grow it, suggestions on what to eat it with, advice on the healing properties, a description of the leaves, recipe ideas and other bits of useful information. This would make a great gift for anyone interested in food as it's an invaluable reference book, and also for anyone interested in design, with its modernist patterns and appealing graphics.
