Another superlative find in the charity shops.

This time ‘Hors D’Oeuvre‘ a short book by June Dutton and Edith Vanocur a couple of Washington D.C. housewives who decided, according to the introduction of the book, to rebel against the “cut and dried canapes” which were apparently the scourge of the fare on offer at certain Washington functions back in 1967.

And in order to ensure their fight against the horror of low quality party food they employed John Astrop and Eric Hill, (yes that one), to illustrate their book.

And a fine very fine job they did . . .
