Where Chefs Eat

Phaidon Press


This worldwide restaurant guide collecting recommendations from acclaimed international chefs. The mountainous volume of information in this lightweight bulky tome details about 2,300 restaurants around the world.

The brief for the book came in a the form of a long list of sales blurbs, and the typographic solution was inspired by 1960's British phone books featuring ads on any possible real estate of the book - the front cover, spine, back cover, and paper edges.

The entire book was printed with a single ink - Process Black, and all pages are composed entirely out of typography and cartography. Over 50 different typefaces were used in this book, including a handful of custom made fonts.
