The Nuria Bringué Bergua ‘Food Type’ typography book showcases delicately stacked masterpieces constructed of ordinary grocery items. This Barcelona-based artist has created seven books for each major group represented in the food pyramid.
The block fonts are created using fresh produce, fruit, bread, dairy and meat. Each letter is cut out by hand and stacked meticulously on top of one another. Bergua does not retouch the typesetting and maintains an undisturbed beauty in her images. The photos could be displayed on their own or as a unified group. The grooves, grains and textures of each edible cutout is magnified by the high-powered camera.
The growing interest in fine cuisine and offbeat artwork clashes paths in these consumable creations. If you enjoy playing with your food as much as the next person, the Nuria Bringué Bergua ‘Food Type’ series will have you salivating for more.
