Hello guys! How is your Monday? Hope you’re not too hungry right now because I’d like to show you something reaaaally delicious. It’s a photo book by a designer, art director, and a writer Dinah Fried.

It’s called Fictitious Dishes: An Album of Literature’s Most Memorable Meals, and it’s so mouth-watering! Inside the book you’ll find 50 photographs of meals from contemporary and classic literature.

Would You Like to Have a Tea, or Gruel?

The madcap tea party from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the watery gruel from Oliver Twist, the stomach-turning avocado-and-crabmeat salad from The Bell Jar, and/or the seductive cupcakes from The Corrections.

Everything (and much more) you’ll find in the book.

Also there will be texts from books that inspired the photographer, and anecdotes about authors, and their culinary predilections. Fictitious Dishes: An Album of Literature’s Most Memorable Meals will be published by HarperCollins in April 2014. Definitely looking forward to it!

  1. It is really great idea to make photographs of fictive meals. :D I like them very much. And I can also see that my previous idea to make photographs upon lyrics is not so crazy. ;) Thanks a lot for this article.
