I found the book The Anatomy of a Dish by Diane Forley on AIGA's website.  The book is full of recipes for the determined chef.  The chosen typeface for the cover is Baskerville, which I believe is a great fit for the cover.  The straight, tidy letters compliment the roundness of the foods chosen to be on the cover.  It also shows that this book is full of kitchen knowledge because of its scholarly look. Even though the font is more widely used in books with a large amount of text, it is still used quite nicely with the pictures inside this book.  Although, I must say that at times it gets hard to read because the letters have such thin lines.  John Baskerville, the creator, was criticized for this at first.  Now, it is one of the most used typefaces we have today.
