The Bindery is excited to host a launch for Dan Bransfield's Pizzapedia. Join us for a meet and greet, pizza (obviously), and a cash bar!

A book for the pizza obsessed, with 80 charming illustrations and information about the history, ingredients, and lore of everyone’s favorite food.

Pizza is a food that lends itself to legend and obsession, spanning geography, generations, and gender. In lavish illustrations and hand-lettered text, Pizzapedia celebrates all there is to fixate about: the stories behind its origin (we have the ancient Greeks to thank before the Italians); the delectable ingredients, from San Marzano tomatoes to buffalo mozzarella; the failed and the famous inventions (like “the pizza saver,” the piece of plastic that prevents a pizza delivery box top from drooping into the pie); the merits of Sicilian vs. New York vs. Chicago vs. new (Detroit?!) styles; and much more. Like the universally beloved food, this art-driven book of miscellany is inviting, colorful, and a delicious gift to give and get.

— Dan Bransfield is a food-loving illustrator and pun enthusiast. Much of his illustration work is made for the food and dining industry, including True Story Foods, Applegate Farms, Beringer Winery ads in The New Yorker, NOPA restaurant, and regular contributions to the Rumpus and Edible San Francisco magazine.

This is an all ages event. The bar opens at 6, event begins at 6:30pm.
