Brownbridge (flourished 1930s – 1940s)
Continental Cookery Radiation cooker brochure design
21.5 x 14 cm
From a small archive of works by Brownbridge, a member of the Society of Industrial Artists.
A beautiful original gouache design for a brochure of continental recipes, created to advertise Radiation cookers (innovative gas cookers which were sold in Britain in the 1920s and 1930s). Brownbridge’s brightly-coloured design includes boldly slanted text in pink and turquoise, set over a deep blue background; he also highlights architectural gems of Europe, such as the Eiffel Tower. By cooking with a Radiation cooker, the cover suggests, you too can experience the cultural and culinary delights of Europe from the comfort of your own home.
