Vintage Modern Cookbook Moodboard | Spruce Rd. #design #botanical #vintage

Happy Monday! The weather was SO beautiful, I went to the park both Saturday and Sunday, and spent a day away from my computer screen. It felt so nice to have a break :).

I wanted to share a sneak peek at a personal project I have been working on for a quite a while. I am designing my family cookbook! Above is the moodboard I created to help me hone in on a specific stylistic direction. I am incorporating a lot of vintage botanical illustrations, mostly in the form of the duotone image of the corn on the lower left. Right now they are used as background images, to add a little interest to the otherwise typographic heavy layout. I have also been busy photographing a few of the recipes to feature as well! It has been so fun to try out several recipes from my Gammy, aunts and cousins. I love creating something so personal, that I know I will treasure forever. I am excited once the book is finished, and will share any progress along the way.

Hope you had a great weekend! Here is to a productive Monday!

    So excited to see the final product! I’m sure it’s going to be gorgeous. Also, super excited that you’ve started your own business! Can’t wait to see where all it leads you! ALSO, kind of makes me feel old. 😉
