These strangely cool photos of food came to us through the ether and we just had to share them. Turns out they are from various childrens' books written and created by Joost Elffers and Saxton Freymann, all of which use creatures made from food to tell their stories.

To create these sculptures, markets throughout the New York metropolitan area were plumbed for expressive produce. These were carved using a simple Exacto knife and enhanced with other natural materials, such as black-eyed peas (for eyes) and beet-juice coloring (for mouths). These sculptures were then photographed against plain and colored backgrounds to achieve the desired effect and mood. To get the whole story, check out their books.
