One of the guys at my office liked it so much that I wrapped the book and gave it to him to keep as a Christmas gift. He's an amateur photographer and his wife loves to bake, so he let me know that both he and his wife thoroughly enjoy the book and have it out on their coffee table along with other art books. I'll just have to (gladly) order a second copy for myself.
I gave the book to my step brother's family in Sweden. His children are 4, 7 & 9 and they don't speak english. I thought it would be the perfect gift -food is such an international language. They loved looking through the book and figuring out what the different things were (broccoli trees, covered wagons made out of a bread loaf etc). It was a hit.
I also gave the book to my niece and nephew, 4 & 7 years old, for Christmas. They too loved it, especially the 7 year old boy who sat there staring at the pages (even amongst all of the other toy gifts).
The nice thing is that adults love the book as well and they can read and tell their children how the landscape was made and about the photography.
Lovely book. Now I just need to buy one for myself!
The author creates three-dimensional scenes with real food--bread, cheese, vegetables, meat, etc.--then photographs them in in sharp, colorful images that could be mistaken for computer-generated works. The results are stunning.
Among the works: a Tuscan landscape, a broccoli forest, a Chinese junk and a fish scape. Each image is accompanied by a list of ingredients and an explanation of how the image came about.
Warner is interested in food issues and plans to use his works in a children's television series to encourage healthy food choices.
If you enjoy food and art, don't miss this book. It's gorgeous.
through the book and guest what food was used.
