Shortlisted Picture Book Of The Year 2012: A World Of Food

A mouth-watering fairy-tale world like you've never seen with pasta palm trees, magical mushroom forests, chocolate swiss roll trains and some very meaty-looking mountains…

There are many mediums through which to express your art, be it in pen and ink, oil paints, collage, or crayon. Using food materials is perhaps one of the more unusual techniques but these are the raw ingredients coming together in this highly imaginative wonderworld created by photographer, Carl Warner. Your culinary excursion takes you from a desert landscape of yellow pyramids of Emmenthal cheese, set amid a sandy desert of couscous, rice and grains; through an atmospheric night star lit up by a cinnamon stick lantern and a corn on the cob candle, and a lush geen land with giant cucumber trees and a courgette bridge that crosses a milky river. The pages that are likely to cause the most "mmms" has to be the chocolate train, and the fluffy marshmallow and nougat house, complete with rooftop jazzies and a lollipop forest. A clever and refreshingly different book that's great fun to pore over and is likely to make you rather hungry.

A World Of Food by Carl Warner  (Abrams, £9.99).
