    Andy Warhol: Wild Rasberries

Illustration: What a treat! Andy Warhol's fabulous drawings of cakes

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Hm? Some inked illustrations of party food by none other than Andy Warhol? Don’t mind if we do. That trifle! Those weird, towering cakes! That French plate! Nothing could be more spectacular than some rarely seen images by someone so ludicrously famous, especially when they’re this whimsical. These drawings by Andy and the recipes by his friend Suzie Frankfurt were meant to be a take on the french haute cuisine cookbooks of the 1950s and were painstakingly created. Unfortunately the book never took off and the copies were mainly given out to all their friends as gifts in order to shift them. Bet those friends are pretty happy now considering just one, framed page is worth a whopping $30,000 a pop.
