So this is the original How It All Vegan that we printed out on my computer and bound ourselves in the living room. It was only about 50 pages and man… I was font crazy when I lay this out. *laugh* If you have one… save it… it will be worth at least double the cover price in a few years. (Note: we sold them for $3.)
Here’s a few outtakes from the HIAV cover shoot. As you can see we look CRAZY in this photo but it gives you a good idea of all the food we had that ended up being cropped out of the photo. Man… look at that pecan pie!
This photo was just a fun shot that the photographer took with my fish-eye lens… I love it… we had a lot of fun at this shoot.
This is the studio apartment where we took the photo. The stove was vintage and I brought over ALL of my kitchy kitchen stuff for the set. We ended up only using a small portion of what I brought over (you can see that my happy-face cookie jar didn’t make the cut). We also had a food-stylist on that shoot where I learned just how fake cookbook photography really is.
More tomorrow! 🙂
do you still talk to tanya? how is she doing? do you think you might collaborate on another cookbook in the future?
p.s. i have all 3 books and i love them:)
These are so fun! Thank you for sharing.
I love it, especially the original cover of HIAV. Those are really cute pictures, too.
I have a happy-face cookie jar too! I felt so cool last summer when I came across the same one on the Drive selling for $75. At home it’s keeping some of my spices.
Great pics, by the way. I’m enjoying seeing what could have been…
ps coincidentally, I’m listening to you on VeganFreak!
