Front cover

This booklet was issued by the Brazil Nut Association, New York. A version was advertised as early as in 1936, already featuring Kernel Nut of Brazil as seen on the back cover. The booklet was still distributed in 1950. The date of this specific editon is unknown.

While the cover combines script lettering with caps from Beton extrafett (1930), the recipe headings use the light weight of Signal, a.k.a. Script-Signal (1932), contrasted with caps from Ultra Bodoni (1928). Text appears to be set in Bodoni.
