"Slovenian Cuisine by Janez Bratovz features dishes from his acclaimed restaurant JB in Ljubljana, and profiles of his favorite producers across Slovenia. The photographs by Manca Jevsček and Matjaz Tančič range from lush landscapes and sensitive portraits, to strikingly modern plates of food. The designers Zare Kerin and Marjan Bozič make generous use of space on each page, giving type and image ample room to breathe on white and light gray fields. Their typography is unique, conforming to a flexible grid that breaks in unexpected places. Especially remarkable is the way Kerin and Bozic artfully set type in slender columns or wide blocks, mirroring the photographs on each spread. Quietly gorgeous, this book is an inspiring visual journey through the Slovenian countryside and its culinary gifts."
