Originally published in 1972, this Vicki Cobb classic was due for an update and redesign. This 256-page hands-on book of edible experiments makes it easy for kids to have fun with science. We were responsible for the design and illustration of the book from the typography system, the structure and layout of the experiments, to the informative technical illustrations, to the colorful chapter openers. We used a limited 2-color palette paired with modern, icon-driven illustrations to help take this book to a new generation of readers.
“Science Experiments You Can Eat is an enticing classic that blends scientific information, DIY engagement, and fun. Carpenter’s delightful illustrations and design complement Cobb’s clever text and interesting experiments.”
