Phaidon Press is widely admired for making some of the best looking, best designed, and best printed design, art and photography books. When they announce the first cookbook in their catalog you know it's going to be something very special. The Silver Spoon has long been considered the bible of Italian cuisine. Originally published more than 50 years ago it was the first cookbook that collected recipes from all over Italy and put them in one book. It has been updated over the years but was still only available in Italian. This new edition (two actually, one for the American market and one for the English market) has been completely re-edited, redesigned and reorganized. It features more than 2,000 recipes and the quality of illustration and photography you've come to expect from Phaidon. Available October 1st for $39.95 list price; preorder here
