Press release:

Chocolate Eiffel Tower, Broccoli Trees and Beef Book

MADRID, July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —

“THE PARIS BOULEVARD” by CARL WARNER is the new Paris Cookbook Fair Poster 2012.

After Argentinean painter Alberto Bali in 2010, French photographer Denis Nidos in 2011, British “Foodscapes” photographer Carl Warner has created the poster for “Paris Cookbook Fair 2012”.

Carl Warner is a British photographer who has worked in the advertising industry for the past 25 years.

Just over ten years ago he began developing an idea for making landscapes out of real food which has now been perfected into his own unique form of art which are affectionately known as ‘Foodscapes’. This has led to many commissions from food brands as well as the publishing of his first book “Carl Warner’s Food Landscapes” through Abrams in New York. He has recently completed work on his second book which will be for children and is currently working on a TV animation project which will hopefully inspire children to be more adventurous with their eating habits and promote healthier eating within society.

In the “Paris Cookbook Fair Poster”, the Eiffel Tower is made of various chocolates. The butter beans road is paved with brie cheese and champagne corks. The trees are parsley, broccoli and kale. The buildings are structured with various breads. The table is a cheese wheel. Finally, the book has a beef cover with ham pages.
