Lightweight, stylish and durable, this apron is an art print created by internationally renowned author/illustrator Alicia Bay Laurel from a page from her best-selling book, Living on the Earth. It's a chef's herb and spice chart, and a cooking or host/hostess apron, all in one.  The book was chosen in 2012 by a committee convened by New York University's Fales Library and the New York Times, as one of the 101 most influential American cookbooks of the 20th century.

Alicia is offering this commemorative printed apron as part of the celebration of the book's 50th anniversary, 5th English edition in 2021, as well as the release of the first French translation of the book, Vivre sur la Terre, in 2022, by Editions Ulmer of Paris.

The image on this apron is Alicia's hand-lettering the herb and spice chart page of Vivre sur la Terre.

Alas, due to an injury, Alicia was not able to complete the hand-lettering the entire book, which was accomplished by French artist Harmonie Begon, to whom Alicia is very grateful.  So, this apron is the only place you will see Alicia's rendition of this page.

Unisex, one size.
