Custom Recipe Book

This custom recipe book was made for a chef named Seth, as a gift from his sister and her husband.
Aside from having a spot for ingredients and lines for directions, her only stipulation was that it look manly and measure around 8.5" x5.5".  I used a mossy green bookcloth, rich brown endsheets and cinnamon colored endbands. I sought Josh's help for the "manly" type treatment! The recipe pages are printed on a thick smooth paper, and the title was printed on a cream Fabriano Tiziano.


  1. This is great, Monica!

    How did you print it? I have people ask me all the time about lined paper or books for special uses, but I am never sure about how everything will line up once the pages are assembled and folded. I would love to hear more about your process.


Thanks for reading this post!
