Pizza from Scratch

By David Esslemont

Picture books & comics, Food & drink | Hardback


This visual narrative tells the story in woodcuts and linocuts of how British artist David Esslemont literally grew a pizza. He plants wheat, tomatoes and basil; designs and builds an adobe clay oven (scale plans included); gives instructions on how to make the dough, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese; fire up the oven, assemble the pizza and cook it in less than three minutes. Edition details: forty copies, hand printed from the original blocks. Thirty-six images, printed on rectos only, except for one double-page spread and a separate plan (folded). 10.5 x 15 inches, landscape, 68pp. Five deluxe copies bound in white alum-tawed goatskin with a design painted in acrylic ink based on one of the pizzas; and thirty-five copies in cloth-covered boards, presented in a printed cloth-covered drop-back box.




David Esslemont is an English artist now living in America. Director of the Gregynog Press from 1985–97, he won the Premio Feliciano International Award for Book Design in 1991. He is best described as "an artist who makes books" and published under his Solmentes Press imprint. His current passion for food and cooking have led to a string of "food" books – visual narratives that include his prize-winning Chili: a recipe, and Pizza from Scratch in which he grows wheat, tomatoes, basil etc and builds a wood-fired oven and cooks pizza.
