Fun and beautiful maps of the world made from signature regional foods

— Food stylist Caitlin Levin and photographer Henry Hargreaves have collaborated on a series of food-based country maps composed of signature national ingredients. The typography is by Sarit Melmed.

"Exploring new places through the food you eat is often a portal to the cultural complexities of that place," Hargreaves wrote in an email. "In this series we have taken many of the iconic foods of countries and continents and turned them into physical maps ... that show how food has traveled the globe - transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place."

Hargreaves pointed out that the maps were "painstakingly created with real unadulterated food." To see how, here's a brief making-of video

Hohenadel's writing on design has appeared in publications including the New York Times, Fast Company, Vogue, Elle Decor, Lonny and Apartment Therapy.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"
