book design inspiration III — recipe format

i thought i'd add some page layouts from a couple of cookbooks. i think these two are good examples of type organization. note how two columns are used, the name of the recipe, the serving size, the time, a paragraph describing the recipe, ingredients, tips (which are called out), and instructions. i also think both layouts' use of page numbers is interesting. for the bottom's, the number is enclosed in a little circle on the bottom right, and the chapter name ("drinks") is in the bottom center. for the top layout, the page number and chapter name are both included in the right margin, which i think is a really cool way to display that information!
