Eat me

Book made of pasta in pan with first layer of lasagna ingredientsAs graphic designers, much of what we do is ephemeral. Once in a while, we create a book or an environmental graphic that sticks around. But more often it’s a brochure, poster, package, ad or piece of stationery that gets tossed pretty quickly.

Here’s a project that’s actually designed to be destroyed. Or, better yet, to be eaten.

The Real Cookbook is an edible publication that contains — and gets physically incorporated into — a classic lasagna recipe. The pages are made of stamped pasta, and are layered sheet by sheet with the rest of theĀ ingredients, then baked. Mmmm.

Created by Korefe, the German design studio, it’s a delicious comment on the impermanent nature of the objects we humans craft with such care.
