vintage spice island cook book inspiration

I was thrilled to find this vintage cookbook at the Rose Bowl flea market yesterday. Lately I've been on a hand drawn illustration kick, and this is chock full of inspiration. The illustrations remind me of linoleum block prints- a favorite of mine from high school and college. And the bright saturated colors are just singing to me. After I'm done swooning over the artwork, I may even find a recipe or two to make!
