I’m a visual person. Images and photographs inspire me. I even prefer pictures in my cookbooks. After all, what’s the point of making a dish if you don’t know how the end product is supposed to look? Anyway, here are a few books from my collection that I enjoy flipping through on occasion—and even a few that I need to borrow/purchase. A few photographs from these books have even been known to inspire short stories and paintings. See for yourself.



Happy reading, y’all.
