Background: Mr. Hoffmann, a restaurant owner in Bad Nauheim, Germany, has a new invention for his guests - particularly foreigners of people with little imagination. He has already taken out a patent for his idea-an illustrated menu, suitable covered to protect it from grease spots. No-one entering Mr. Hoffmann's restaurant need wonder what, say, 'Pommes Rote de Chef Speciale' are - they can see for themselves.
