Where Chefs Eat | Kobi Benezri
Where Chefs Eat is an international restaurant guide listing contributions from more than 400 of the world’s best chefs. The book is inspired by a 1956 local phone directory of residents and businesses in Hastings that was given to Benezri from Alan Fletcher years ago.
The book is printed with a one-colour process and is 704 pages of pure typography and Benezri’s hand-drawn cartography- in which each map was specifically drawn for the book. The listings are set in many typographic styles but the titles were all set in Tobias Frere-Jones’s Garage Gothic.
“There’s more than a fair amount of typefaces in this book, including a few unreleased ones that I had drawn myself over the years — some were used once in a single projects, other were never used — needless to say, this was a good chance to utilize some of them and ultimately create an object that would truly stand out on store displays or the online retail sphere.” –Benezri
