This was the last book design commissioned by the late Pina Templeton. The Union League of Philadelphia - A History of Food and Drink was intended to be a gift to the social club that Mrs. Templeton had been a long time member of, as well as a gift for it's star chef, Martin Hamann. This book is the story of the social club's beginning and it's tie with great food and drink. It highlights each of the League's dining venues and includes perfed recipe cards so club members can recreate their favorite dishes and drinks at home.
The beginning portion of this book design plays off of ephemera from the League's archives, decades-old cookbooks, and engraved art. The second half of the book showcases the League's dining venues in a more modern light.
The book was very well received by the social club and has been given out as gifts to members of the Union League of Philadelphia.
