I think I'm having a freakout by these psychedelic images that are from an early 70s book by Peggy Treadwell called The Working Couple's Cookbook. It must have been a slightly progressive publication for its time, considering it addressed the needs of households where both partners worked, whether "roomates, soulmates, playmates, or wedded mates." All images are via Flickr from Kyle Katz's Vintage Cookbook Cover and Illustrations album.
Craig Torlucci was the artist. I can't say I'm familiar with his work, but I love the abstract, stained glass look. Wish some of the recipes had been scanned as well...one of them was chicken with spiced....crabapples? Ewww. Must be a 70s thing. I did see a copy of the book up for grabs on eBay, and Amazon carries some used ones. Note there's no children in any of the illustrations. That certainly makes cooking and taking care of a household easier for these two:
