This amazing series by the Swiss publisher Opt Art, with text in both English and German, focuses on different regions, showcasing restaurants and chefs through reproductions of their menus and recipes accompanied by remarkably vivid large-format photographs of plated food. The series began in 1997 and was published annually until renowned photographer Bruno Hausch, who led the project, was killed in a mountaineering accident.
The release of each handsome, slipcased volume generated much excitement. All volumes have since been sought by collectors who recognized the value of the perspective they provided.
Volume 8: Tokyo and Europe (2004) includes Hotel de Mikuni and Sushikoh as well as a profile of the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, Auberge de l’Ill in France, Le Calandre in Italy, and Restaurant San Pau and El Celler de Can Roca in Spain, as well as ten other restaurants.
Fine, unused condition. The slipcase, though intact, shows a fair amount of shelfwear.
