This beautiful cookbook, La Puglia in un piatto, was conceptualized and designed by Usopposto. Here is a description of the concept, direct from the source:

This book is the result of a study that sought to explore, through the aesthetic sign, the close relationship that unites every dish to “its” plate, and proposed to extend the concept of food to a broader sensory experience, which evokes the atmosphere and images. An effective antibody against consumerism that fills the belly and clear your mind, an invitation to get back in the kitchen trying to remake the traditional recipes from Apulia, to return to the role of the temple kitchen of the home.

60 recipes of traditional cuisine of Apulia, accompanied by many illustrations, the result of a path that links design and territory.

The book is currently only available in Italian, but will soon be released in English. You can see quite a few more sample pages right here.
