From Eat Street, with Love: Stories and Recipes from Minneapolis’ Best Tasting Neighborhood is in its second printing at Bookmobile, after its first run quickly sold out! We’ve produced many cookbook printing projects, and this is definitely one of the most well-designed books we’ve seen lately.

About the Cookbook

Eat Street is the nickname for seventeen blocks of Nicollet Avenue in South Minneapolis, home to over 50 restaurants. From Eat Street, with Love was put together by Zeus Jones, a business innovation and design company that’s new to the neighborhood. Zeus Jones wrote a great post about the making of the book here, with behind-the-scenes photos of their design process and the photo shoots for the recipes.

Fifteen restaurants are featured in the cookbook, with recipes ranging from Gyst Fermentations Bar‘s Celeriac, Leek, Rosemary Traditional Pickle to Marissa’s Supermarket and Bakery’s Enchiladas Verdes (pictured above). There’s also a handy list of six places (six!) to get a báhn mì (I love báhn mì). All proceeds from the book sales are being donated to the Whittier Alliance to support the Eat Street neighborhood. Books are being sold online and in retail stores.

Cookbook Printing at Bookmobile

Cookbook printing is a natural fit for Bookmobile—a cookbook needs the same features a beautiful art book or exhibition catalog needs: high-quality color printing, strong binding, and options. Bookmobile was recommended to Zeus Jones by Coffee House Press (we appreciate referrals!).

From Eat Street, with Love is 8″ x 10″ with 102 pages printed 4-color on 60-lb. white 30% PCW stock. The interior also has six insert pages (three sheets) printed 4-color on 100-lb. white stock that work as section dividers between the chapters devoted to Starters, Slides, and Salads, Main Dishes, and Treats.

The cookbook is perfect bound with a 4-color cover on 80 lb. vanilla stock with matte lamination, and a registered deboss on the front and back cover.

From Zeus Jones,

Bookmobile did excellent work printing our cookbook. And when we sold through our first printing faster than we’d anticipated, they were able to quickly do a second printing to help us keep shelves stocked during the holidays.
