Some of you may remember that splendid book from a few years back--Material World: A Global Family Portrait--by photographer Peter Menzel that showed different families in various countries as they stood outside their houses with all their furnishings, coffee pots, harnesses, beds, etc. displayed with them. It was, of course, a good illustration of the haves and have nots.
Now the same photographer (along with writer, Faith D'Alusio) has brought out a book showing what different people around the world eat in a day. Whether a plate of burgers topped with multiple soft-drinks or a bowl of gruel. What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.
Here are two sites which offer a series of illustrations from the book. Since we're in our holiday eating mode, it seems a timely topic.
