Booklicious: Etsy Gems: Vicki Smith's Button Book

November 29, 2012


Even though my husband is the chef of the household, I've somehow been infected with the cookbook bug (Nigella is my particular weakness). We've got so many at this point that they've taken over one of our shelving units and have staged an invasion of one of our prep surfaces. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise, then, that these tiny button books have sparked my interest.

Painstakingly crafted by New Jersey–based illustrator Vicki Smith, this little accordion-folded book features a recipe for oatmeal pancakes. The book details the process via 14 tiny pages of watercolor illustrations, which are mounted between two 1.25-inch buttons. I only wish there were additional volumes to ogle.

You can buy the book for $12 here and learn more about Vicki and her work here.

These are neat. Could they be magnetized to put on a refrigerator?

You could add magnets, I guess, but then you would either be hiding the actual button or one of the pages of the recipe. It's a cute idea, though.
