Berkeley: St. Heironymous Press, 1970. Fifth printing. Folio. 30 letterpress printed recipes of various sizes laid in printed portfolio. Light wear to portfolio else fine. Item #18765
First produced in 1968, these recipes were compiled and edited by Alice Waters, then a recent graduate of the University of California Berkeley. They were first printed from linoleum blocks and written in calligraphy by David Lance Goines, a well-known Berkeley activist and graphic artist. Goines and Waters met at the Berkeley Free Press in 1966, where Waters was printing posters for a congressional campaign. They soon collaborated on these recipes, first published as a weekly cooking column by their friend Bob Novick at the San Francisco Express Times. Goines published the recipes as a collection in December 1970 from the Berkeley Free Press, which he had purchased and renamed St. Hieronymus Press. The early printings sold out in Berkeley, but were reproduced as lithographs until being discontinued in 1978. - Smithsonian.
