“If food is the next sex, meet the replacement for your dusty (and borderline skeezy) coffee table book of sepia-toned erotica. From Art Deco appetizers to psychedelic desserts, this full portion collection of art director-approved bills of fare proves that sometimes the best thing on the menu is the menu itself.”— Mental Floss, Birmingham, United Kingdom
“In the new book Menu Design in America, editor Jim Heimann and contributing authors Steven Heller and John Mariani compile a history of menus and the way in which they have evolved throughout American history. Complete with stunning photography, this 400-page quintessential coffee table book showcases our nation’s history, cultural trends, and social revolutions by way of menu graphics and design. It will certainly make you notice the menu the next time you dine out!”— The Blue Lifestyle Minute, Malibu, United States
