A menu from Hotel Post in Wallgau, a municipality in Bavaria, Germany. Hotel Post, which is in the Karwendel Alps, was originally founded as an inn and farm in 1621. This expansive menu, dated 1989, is a bit newer. Includes soups, appetizers, main dishes, a kids’ menu, sweets and desserts, cheeses, wine and drinks, with lunch and specials sheets paper-clipped in. Mottled tan cardstock with a laminated cover, full-color cover and border decorations, and bound with an elastic cord, 23.3 by 34 cm, 24 pp. (including covers). Very good with light edge and corner wear, and a light musty smell. Also included are two color photographs (presumably of the Hotel Post dining room) and two original ink sketches by the late Ray Jansma, a well-respected and prolific architect and artist who was based in Fremont, Michigan. The sketches, dated 1999, depict a menu design for the Alpen Rose restaurant in Holland, Michigan; and a façade of the same establishment. Jansma was instrumental in the renovation and revitalization of downtown Holland during this period, and obviously the Hotel Post was an inspiration for the Alpen Rose. The sketches were done on tracing paper and measure 23.3 by 34.2 cm and 31 by 23.3 cm. Both are very good with light browning around the edges, and both are signed by Jansma.
