Sonia Kretschmar takes on Carlton

Last night saw the launch of the latest "cook book" endeavour by Melbourne design studio Wolfgang, Shlomo & Max. It was great to have the opportunity to carve a lino print for this project, my first in years. The majority of the book was printed at the Melbourne Museum of Printing, and every illustration printed used the actual lino each artist cut as a printing plate.

From the W,S&M site: "COOKBOOK north/south is a not-for-profit publication, letterpress printed by hand, with a limited edition of 500. Each of COOKBOOK north/south’s ten suburb-inspired chapters feature a lino-cut artwork, short story and three recipes. A unique collection of letterpress forms, typography and colour create the visual identity for each suburb chapter. An unbound publication, COOKBOOK north/south comprises of hand printed individual cards, first offset and then letterpress printed at the Melbourne Museum of Printing".

All profits go to the food charity Second Bite, which redistributes unwanted food to the needy in Victoria & Tasmania, and the book can be purchased here :)
