Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carl Warner is a professional photographer known for his miniature landscapes made entirely from edible ingredients. A World of Food presents 12 of his amazing pictures, each one showing young readers what the world might look like if there were only a single color. “Yellow” is a desert made of pasta palm trees, cereal sand, and swiss cheese pyramids, while “Orange” features pumpkin cottages, carrot trees, and apricot leaves. Playful verse accompanies each image, guiding viewers through the pictures and inviting them to figure out the various foods used (which are all identified at the back of the book). This is a wonderful book about colors and creativity for parents and children to look through together and discover the many different foods that make up Warner’s fantastical world.

Praise for A World of Food

"Children will delight in pointing at the sweet ingredients, such as meringue clouds and lollipop trees."

Wall Street Journal

"Kids and adults alike will marvel at these painstakingly assembled and composed photos, eagerly identifying the foods that make up the details of the landscapes."

Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

In recent years, Carl Warners photographs have been unofficially circulating on the Internet and in mass e-mailings, to the pleasure of thou­sands upon thousands of viewers. Now, these images and many new ones are collected in one volume.

 

In the spirit of Play with Your Food, Carl Warners Food Landscapes is a colorful and fantastically imaginative collection of landscapes constructed entirely from fruits and vegetables, cheeses, breads, fish, meat, and grains. The book offers a trip around the world in 25 international tableaux constructed from appropriate regional ingredi­ents. Each photo is spectacular on its own, but the effort of constructing it is equally fascinating. Every image in the book is followed by an essay about the creative process and stories from the photo shoots, as well as behind-the-scenes material such as preliminary sketches, making-of photos, detail shots, and a list of the ingredients and their position in the final picture.
