White Elephant Celebrity Cookbook, 1973, 1979, As-If-New Condition: This is a stunning cookbook. I can’t really say stunningly beautiful, because parts are funny, parts are almost disturbing, and parts are beautiful. While the cooks submitting recipes are celebrities from all over England (where this cookbook was published,) the illustrations are by international graphic artists, photographers, and designers. So, the results are amazing.
This is an oversized, very glossy hard back cookbook published by Weidenfeld & Nicholson, London. 239 pages. It was compiled by Stella Richman. The 1979 second edition has additional illustrators and recipes, added to the original. Both editions were fundraisers for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. The dust jacket has some minor shelf wear. The book is in as-if-new condition.
