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.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
