Beyond the novelty, there are a couple of nice things about cocktail cards. They’re small and they weigh less than books if you want to take them somewhere. Also unlike books, you can arrange them in the order you prefer.
In fact, you could even assemble your own book from them. Make it scrapbook style, or get sheet protectors like people use for trading cards.
This set really looks like a deck of playing cards - because it is! Each card doubles as one of the standard playing cards in a Hoyle deck. The back of each card has a pattern, just like playing cards. The front has the name of the recipe along with the ingredients and instructions to make it.
