PERFECT GIFT IN NEW PAPERBACK PACKAGE: As with Kalman’s previous titles, BELOVED DOG, THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, and THE PRINCIPLES OF UNCERTAINTY, CAKE in this new format will be a colorful and exciting package, making it a perfect gift for Mother’s Day.
SIGNATURE KALMAN STYLE: As always, Kalman’s paintings in CAKES are exquisite, joyful, and full of life. Kalman is a professional artist and designer, who has painted many New Yorker covers. Her work is well-known, and easily recognizable, and both her fans and those new to her work will be drawn in by her delightful and unique aesthetic.
FOR THE BAKER IN ALL OF US: With 16 recipes from Barbara Scott-Goodman for her and Kalman’s favorite cakes, CAKES will dazzle any cook, young or old, who enjoys baking desserts.
“This small, stunningly designed book of less than 100 pages is a work of art, and its minimal prose reads like poetry…The prose is accompanied by Ms. Kalman’s beautifully expressive paintings—work she deems naive, cartoony and humorous, but which is also mysterious, subtle and wise. There is always cake, the eating of cake and gathering around cake. There is love and loss, heartbreak, celebration, poignant and hilarious times—always with cake. One might assume that the recipes are mere props in such a book. But Ms. Scott-Goodman is an accomplished cookbook writer, and her 17 simple, festive and pretty cakes make an elegantly curated collection of recipes that anyone might like to have in a little cookbook.” — Wall Street Journal
"The joyful illustrations and homey recipes beautifully celebrate the comfort of cake.” — Publishers Weekly
