Darryl's Restaurants

For many years everything done for the Darryl's chain of restaurants was created by hand, including all of the text in their printed materials. Eventually the copy made the transition to typesetting, but the hand-done headers, subheads and page art continued in later designs.

The dinner menu is 10"x16.25" with a full color cover and two color interior and die-cut into the shape of a beer mug. The book is printed on heavy uncoated cream cover stock and held together by a threaded elastic band.

In addition to the design, I also created the hand-drawn typography and all of the llustrations.
