A New York-based stylist, Caitlin Levin, and a New Zealand- based artist, Henry Hargreaves, teamed up to create beautiful maps using real food as their medium. Levin and Hargreaves selected the staple food(s) of 4 continents (Africa, North America, South America, and Australia), 6 countries (China, France, India, Italy, Japan, and New Zealand), and 1 sovereign state (UK). For instance, bread and cheese for France, spices for India, and corn for North America.
Both artists were inspired merely by their passion for traveling.
You’ll notice that each map is made up of just one type of food with some variations within that food. The artists used patterns to separate the different cities, countries, and states within each map.
Graphic designer, Sarit Melmed, created custom vintage-style typography that adorns each map.
