'Fictitious Dishes' is collection of photos that portrays different meals as described in iconic literary works. The annals of literature are filled with eloquent descriptions of meals, ranging from a chapter dedicated to chowder in 'Moby Dick' and a depiction of the famous 'mad' tea party in 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.'

The photos are contained in a photography book titled 'Fictitious Dishes,' put together by New York-based graphic designer Dinah Fried. The project started as a small section of Fried's thesis when she was a graduate student at the Rhode Island School of Design.

The books represented in 'Fictitious Dishes' include 'Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens, 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' by Hunter S. Thompson and 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Stieg Larsson.
