In Search of the Lost Taste

Now out: In Search of the Lost Taste, a vegan cookbook by Joshua Ploeg. I art-directed and designed this half-recipes/half-adventure/sci-fi/fantasy novella with cover illustration by comic maestro Aaron Renier and copious interior illustrations by the mighty drawing overlord Nate Beaty. The typography within is something I’m a bit proud of, as well- a hodgepodge of no less than twenty typefaces are deployed to make the book fun to read while still communicating effectively.

The author Joshua was the singer of some of the best West Coast weirdo hardcore bands around including Mukilteo Fairies and Behead the Prophet No Lord Shall Live before his most recent stint as an amazing itinerant vegan chef.

The book is available via the publisher, Microcosm or directly through me in Japan.
