Are there any cookbooks that get more difficult with each recipe?

I'm trying to learn how to cook and I'm wondering if there are any good cookbooks that I can buy to follow along with? They might not exist, but are there cookbooks that start out with something so basic as how to boil and egg and end up getting more complex as they go along? If not, what cookbooks would the best for a new cook to check out?

Simple and beautiful cookbook layout examples?

I'm writing an Asian cookbook. The recipes are mostly finished, and I'm currently testing and narrowing them down to the truly tasty. It'll be self published for friends and family, so won't need to look truly fancy. But I'm stuck for inspiration as to design and layout. So I'm looking for examples of simple but beautiful cookbook page layouts. Preferably viewable online. Suggestions?
