Patricia Curtan, the illustrator responsible for several of Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse cookbooks (and a letterpress aficionado), will be speaking on the illustration and typography of cookbooks, along with Christopher Hirsheimer, the principal photographer from Saveur magazine and several book publishing creative directors. A few tickets may still be available (shame on me for waiting so long to post!) but take a look at wanderingspoon.com (check out the events calendar on the right-hand side).
The panel is sponsored by the Commonwealth Club of California. Registration for non-members is $19, $12 for members.
