They Don't Make Cookbooks Like They Used to

I found this great 1933 vintage "Balanced Recipes by Pillsbury" in a stamped aluminum Art Deco binder. I think it's rare to find a book that looks like an appliance, and this is definitely a collection that can take a good beating in the kitchen. The previous owner made good use of the binder by handwriting and typing their own recipes in the appendix.
