Cookery Books Covers

These booklets were published by HM Government in 1945, aiming to educate the public how to use all types of food correctly - and without any waste! In those days, there was an actual Ministry of Food (the publisher of these books) concerned with the health of the nation that had just suffered so much in the war. No need for advice against junk food as there was none! Very concise, practical, easy to follow and full of hints and valuable information that many modern cook books leave out. A far cry from the sensational books by all the celebrity chefs surrounding us today. And the design looks cool too!
