Meet the Short Stack cookbooks.
Short Stack is a series of small-format cookbooks about inspiring ingredients, authored by America’s top culinary talents. Each edition is a collectible, single-subject booklet packed with recipes that offer ingenious new ways to cook our favorite ingredients.
They're just so nice looking. Each book is printed locally and stitch-bound by hand using baker's twine. Short Stack also invites readers to help with bookmaking at a gathering they host for each edition they release. I also love that Short Stack is another Kickstarter success story. Basically this whole thing just screams "community".
I'm also on quite a "I need all the beautiful tea towels" kick right now, so of course this caught my eye:
