My recipe book addiction

I have a serious problem. I am addicted to recipe books.

A very small selection of favourites from my collection.

Which is somewhat ironic because I find it virtually impossible to actually FOLLOW a recipe. I guess you could say I use them more as inspiration than directions. There is something about the design and photography of recipe books that I just adore, and could happily spend hours flipping through the pages, imagining myself whipping up delicious and gourmet meals.

Anyway, in case you yourself have the same affliction, here is a list of my very favourites:
Not that I really need any help fuelling this addiction, but please, let me know your favourites too. Just so I can look, ok?
