The Creative Cooking Course, 1980s vintage. This is edited by Charlotte Turgeon (editor of the Larousse Gastronomique). "A complete course in the art of cooking with 1200 recipes and 2500 photos" (in color!).
This is so big and heavy I can't get it to stand neaty to have its photo taken, my pics here don't make this look as nice and as fun as this book really is. Cook in the (vintage) French tradition. And please invite me to dinner!
