DARJI'S MUTTON CURRY

A memoir to my late great grandfather

The miniature cookbook memoir was designed and written with reference to my great grandfather's mutton curry recipe. The memoir expresses the memory of his famous dish. Darji, who passed away at 94 wrote this recipe to me about a year ago. This project is therefore very close to my heart and was handmade in 6 copies.

The text type is Minion, an old style serif typeface. It makes a great font for printed cookbooks as it is a serif typeface which tends to be easy to read in printed books. The display text is Josefin Sans, an elegant typeface having a vintage feeling. It’s best use is for headings and is inspired by geometric sans serif styles in the 1920s.
