A Slice of Cherry Pie by Julia Parsons (Absolute Press)
Art Direction, Design and Layout: Matt Inwood
Photography: Cristian Barnett | Food Styling: Andrea O’Connor
This was the debut book from Julia Parsons, who, at the time, was one of the UK’s leading food bloggers and the founder of the UK Food Bloggers Association. Julia’s book interwove beautifully composed evocations of places, people and memories with a mix of modern rustic dishes which shared her passion for sharing good food. Homely food photography from Cristian Barnett was set alongside montages of text, family snapshots and a collage of design and photographic scraps to provide a charming visual backdrop to Julia’s assured recipe prose.
