face food

I found this book in Readings a little while ago and had to keep it hidden away as a gift for my boyfriend for finishing his thesis - he finally finished so I got to give it to him (and take a closer look myself!)

The full title is Face Food: The Visual Creativity of Japanese Bento Boxes and it's just full of pictures of the awesome cartoons people make out of food - Charaben. You can view the authors blog here... plenty of pics and links to other Charaben bloggers.

My favourite... Piglet!

Omg I love making bento! Can't wait to have my new shop so I can take lunchboxes to work.
