The Rural Storey: Food Anatomy
You’ve seen Julia Rothman’s work, even if you haven’t realized it was hers. The Brooklyn-based artist’s drawings have appeared in newspapers and magazines, billboards, posters, wallpaper and dishes. For Storey Publishing, she’s written and illustrated three astoundingly gorgeous books, Nature Anatomy, Farm Anatomy and Food Anatomy. They’re filled with bursts of information hovering beside quirky facts about everything food-related, from implements used around the world to the foods, however foreign, they're used for.
And it's the kind of book you can randomly open and find something that'll make you say, “I didn't know that!” The variety of traditional ovens around the world. How to cut a mango. What cashews look like when they're growing on the tree. Sandwiches, dumplings and meat dishes around the globe. Rothman's mom's recipe for noodle pudding.
It’s a treasure trove of fascinating facts and a delightful read, but it’s really a feast for the eyes.
