New Additions: Artistic Food

NEW ADDITIONS bannerNEW ADDITIONSToday we have three new prints to share with our OPG blog readers. These food-inspired chromolithographs were published by L. Upcott Gill, a London-based firm, in the late 1890s. Lithographed by Mclagen and Cumming, these prints are deliciously colorful and offer fascinating insight into the food culture of the late 19th century. All “artistically” arranged, the cakes, desserts, and entrée dishes are a dramatic visual display of the meals a cook could prepare using Cassell’s Universal Cookery Book.
