Why not 'des', if 'recettes' is plural?

Also no article in front of livre. Why?

I think its because the plural is applicable to the recipes, not the book

I have since read that it is acceptable to drop the article at the beginning of titles.

I don't quite get why there isn't an article here either. Would you say "J'ai livre de recettes"? And if so, why?
