A Japanese postcard-style cookbook illustrations

These capricious vintage postcard-style illustrations are by Japanese artist Ryo Takemasa, who was authorized to make the book cover and inside outlines for the cookbook How To Cook by Annie Bell. Implanted with his mark overlays, shading palettes and surfaces, his delineations of organic product, vegetables, cheddar or fish have a beguiling handcrafted quality to them in spite of being carefully rendered. Takemasa, an alum of Japan’s Musashino Art University, has made craftsmanship for magazines, books and publicizing, all of which you can see on his portfolio.
