Overview

Here are over 400 different royalty-free motifs, in a variety of styles, related to preparing, serving, and consuming food and drink. Taken primarily from 19th-century sources, these attention-getting subjects — some humorous, some sentimental, but all appealing — depict waiters, patient (and impatient) customers, waitresses in stiffly starched aprons, romantic couples in intimate dining scenes, people eating, drinking, tasting, nibbling, sniffing, and sampling all manner of sumptuous repasts, midday snacks, liquid refreshment, and evening fare.
Also included in this highly versatile collection are dozens of individual illustrations of wine decanters and goblets, pitchers, glasses, kitchen utensils, bottles, inviting dishes, table linen, tea kettles, candles, cast-iron stoves, as well as lavishly laden tables and pastoral scenes announcing "Wine List" and "Menu."
This valuable sourcebook, with its charming silhouettes, lifelike drawings, and delightful turn-of-the-century characters, has everything graphic artists, restaurant owners, and food-management services need to create inexpensive graphics for signs, posters, catalogs, announcements, advertisements, menus, cookbooks, and countless other projects.
