Cool Culinaria: vintage menus reworked as prints


Reworking vintage menus into new artworks, Cool Culinaria prints are where food meets retro style.    

Established by Charles Baum, Barbara McMahon and Eugen Beer, the company researches original historical menus and reworks them into new prints. For example, the design pictured comes from Frolics in the 1950s, a New England restaurant that hosted many celebrities up until its closure in 2000. There's a large range of choice, covering North American, British and French menus, dating back to the 19th century and going up to the 1970s. However, the main focus lies on the elaborate menus produced in the 1930s to 1960s.

What's great about this site is the love and detail that has gone into the selection. There's a brief history of each resturant or bar on the website, and each print comes with a copy of the menu interior, making it a must for foodies as well as design fans.                            

And they're reasonably priced too. Each print is £35.
