We had the great fortune of collaborating with Jen Munkvold and Taylor Peden on this book.

Their photography is at once engaging and informing, dramatic without melodrama. There’s a feeling of stark honesty through their lens that, when turned on the subjects in the book, stripped away any sense of preciousness.

All images from the gallery were taken by Peden+Munk for A New Napa Cuisine. For more information, visit their website.



We owe the book’s singular and substantial design to MGMT; a design studio comprised of Sarah Gephart and Luise Strauss. Their unwavering attention to detail and tone forged a living, breathing book from a mass of words and images.
