Alice Tait

Alice Tait has illustrated the front cover for The Acorn House Cookbook, by Arthur Potts Dawson. Tait worked alongside designer David Lane, who created the identity for the author’s Acorn House restaurant in London WC1. The layout of the book includes specially designed borders which allow users to get it messy, and touch it with hands covered in food. Its look veers away from the glossy cookbook ideal, as it is intended to be a ‘usable manual’. Published by Hodder, it is priced £20.
