Book Design: Wordless Cookbook a-la IKEA minimalism

IKEA’s japanese-inspired, no-words cookbook may not be the most useful set of cooking instructions but it’s perfectly useful for quickly assessing a recipe’s required ingredients against one’s immediate culinary inventory. Usefulness aside, what a gorgeous way to arrange ingredients!

  1. What if this were used as a companion to an online cookbook? Instructions online, quick reference on-hand. After cooking an item a few times, a quick visual checklist is often all that’s needed. This would work.Same idea could go for gardening tips, common auto mechanics, simple building projects… Lego reductionism!

  2. I still don’t think so. When you cook, there’s only so much looking away from what you’re doing that you can do. Online and a print book? Too much looking away. I think it’s aother one of those pretty, but useless things. And there’s nothing wrong ith that, as long as you know what you’re getting when you buy it.
