“Sketches for bread book Wendy Jones” for “English Bread and Yeast Cookery”.

London: 1977.

Three unpublished pen and ink sketches by Wendy Jones on tracing paper pasted to white board, with some use of correction fluid. Contained in a large folder (37 x 29 cm.) titled “Sketches for bread book Wendy Jones”. The bread book is Elizabeth David's English Bread and Yeast. The first board (21.5 x 19 cm.) contains two images: two measuring cups and a kitchen scale. The second board (12.5 x 12 cm.) is a drawing of a loaf tin. Image three (15 x 12 cm.) is of a dough bin. Also included are eight pages of designer's paste-up "for an article on pies" according to a note on the first paste-up. Laid into the paste-up is a single leaf of notes and rough drawings, possibly in David's hand. Paste-ups good only. The sketches have some age-toning to tracing paper, corners of boards bumped in some cases, otherwise fine.

Price: $600.00
