Pizza- The greatest comfort food of all?
We know that we are not the only ones that could potentially eat it every day, so we want to share with you two new books that celebrate our love and deep- (dish- ha!) commitment to all things Pizza!
Viva la Pizza!: The Art of the Pizza Box by Scott Wiener
Scott Wiener has been collecting and cataloging pizza boxes for more than five years. In Viva la Pizza!, Wiener traces design trends over the past four decades and profiles some of the world’s most prolific box designers and manufacturers. The result is a captivating overview of pizza culture and a new way to look at one of the world’s favorite foods.
