BIG TOP BITES

A cookbook for a whole meal prepared by a group of circus performers. The book, much like a circus, is full of bright colors, bold patterns, and lots of energy. The expressive typography is based on circus posters.

Each of the performers has their own recipe to share. Intros were written from their point of view. The Fire Breather wrote about "Flaming Hot Peanuts" to warm up his mouth. The acrobats' recipe is a "Chinese Chicken Salad" to help them stay in shape for their performance. The Strong Man likes his red meat, so his recipe is "Sweet and Smokey Spareribs." The clowns wanted a better pies, so their recipe is "Heavenly Pie."
