This post is all good news and bad news: The good news is that a baking book called Hembakat är Bäst (Homemade Is Best) has been published, with the most unusual cookbook photography around. Thirty recipes for Swedish cakes and biscuits are illustrated with geometric, almost abstract arrangments of ingredients, styled by Evelina Bratell and photographed by Carl Kleiner.

The other good news is that the book is free, but the very, very bad news is that it’s is only available at  IKEA stores in Sweden.

Ikea has just published a collection of baking recipes called Hembakat är Bäst (Homemade Is Best). Sure, knowing how to make Princess Cake is fine and dandy, but the volume is illustrated with some of the most inventive cookbook photography I’ve ever seen: Styled by Evelina Bratell and photographed by Carl Kleiner, the pristine arrangements of ingredients are so stark and geometric that they verge on the abstract. The good news is that the book is completely free; the bad news is that the only place you can get it is in the kitchen section of Ikea stores — in Sweden.
