How to boil an egg

Not quite food photography but brilliant nonetheless, I spotted this cookbook ‘How to boil an egg‘ that uses illustrations of food that look just like photographs. The detail in them is outstanding – what an interesting concept! Artist Fiona Strickland illustrated each recipe from photographs of the recipes, taking around 3 weeks each of drawing then painting in watercolour. You can read more about the process here…
