When it comes to an art medium we can really sink our teeth into, food is near the top of our list. After all, few things bring people together like food. It’s relatable, familiar, often comforting, and let’s face it, essential to our very being. Philadelphia-based photographer Dominic Episcopo invites viewers to “Meat America” through this engaging and polarizing series of photographs of, well, meat — carved, molded, manipulated — to look like American icons. Episcopo describes the project as “an eye-opening and artery-closing tour of America’s spirit of entrepreneurship, rebellion and positivity.” From Elvis, to Lincoln, to the Liberty Bell as subjects, Episcopo’s carnivorous wit shines through. And his photography skills are not too shabby either. Patriotic protein aside, Episcopo’s sense of composition and lighting is stellar. A less skilled photographer would not have pulled this off so well. Episcopo’s book available here.

Croatian multidisciplinary designer Vladimir Koncar has a fondness for experimental typography, as shown in his terrific typography project called Diary Type. “Diary Type is a kind of personal typographic diary that started as a experiment in 2007. I collect various objects and from them I form the letters. With those letters I write my thoughts down and they are a symbolic link between the font and the reflections.” We particularly love the seemingly random choice of materials.

Some projects are just unadulterated novelty, as is the case with this book by Polish designer/photographer Pawel Piotrowski. The entire book contains pages made up of sandwich ingredients. It’s purely delicious fun, and we love it! Other food-related posts here and here and here.
