Happy Saturday! I have a serious sweet tooth post coming your way. It’s only fitting since my last batch was on Valentine’s Day. These dessert illustrations can also be used as crafting material for Valentine’s Day, and many other projects as well. Personally, I think these guys are great for learning how to draw, collage, creating imaginative works, and designing hidden picture video games.
But where did these yummy illustrations come from? A cookbook from the turn of the century – 1908 to be exact. It was originally archived by the Library of Congress, but you can also find the full color-illustrated cookbook on Archive.org. All the images in this post were curated from the chocolate dessert section. And that section was huge, as the cookbook was also sponsored by a chocolate company.
So without further ado. Let’s get chocolate wasted!
