Carl Warner has created some fantastic images, but the layout of this disappointing edition breaks most of them asymmetrically across two pages. That may protect them from unlicensed full reproduction, but it also prevents them from being displayed as they were conceived. You will do better to search for and view them online. Too bad.

This is a beautiful picturesque book with stories on how the artist created each piece of his work. It would make a wonderful coffee table book. Great for food and art lovers. One of the pieces I had looked forward to seeing in the book is the Parisian scene with Eiffel Tower in the background but it is not in the book.

I'd seen a reference to this book on some TV show I was watching, so I looked it up and ordered it for myself and my girlfriend who consider ourselves somewhat "foodies". Had it shipped to my office first where I skimmed through it, and showed it off to a few other guys in the office who also loved the book format, presentation, and artwork within. The book doesn't just show the finished artwork, but also shows how the food landscapes are created from artist conception, to construction, and finally digital enhancement. The end result is lovely photographs that you appreciate more by recognizing the various food pieces that make up the beautiful and surreal landscapes.

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 love this book. I saw a review for it in an airline magazine and I was so taken but the amazing food landscapes. It's so creative and amazingly photographed. I make gingerbread villages every year and these inventive landscapes really inspired me.

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!

Format: Hardcover
Cabbages as a stormy sea, landscapes of salami, cottages of cheese, all are among the highlights of Carl Warner's Food Landscapes, an impressively creative and fun book of art by Carl Warner.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Carl Warner's Food Landscapes provides a fine collection of international landscapes made entirely from food. It comes from a veteran photographer whose images have been circulating on the Internet and are collected here for the first time under one volume. Every image is followed by a section that includes an essay about its assembly and stories from the shoots, making this a 'must' for both arts and culinary libraries.

The book if a wonderful illustration of someone's out of the box creativity, focus, and intention to create from the imagination that which is extraordinary and has so much of the "what ifs" in the work. The book is one that I have sent to a friend because another friend showed me this wonderful book of work.
