Food posters for the kitchen
The Holstee poster, a vintage print of the U.S. Administration from the First World War, designed by Frederick G. Copper, reminds us of the elementary rules of eating. Guiding principles that should still be considered.
We forget how self-evident food food became for us in our fast consumerist world. A century-old rules sheet of food reminds us to deal carefully with our resources and being grateful for the food we have, which is as good as always available.
Purchasing consciously and local, cooking with care, using less wheat and meat, serving sized portions and leftover food should be reused - those are the self-evident rules we should reflect when we cook.
The poster by Holstee decently reminds us of those rules again and again, hanging in the kitchen or in the dining room. A wall decoration with added value.
