I am a serious fan of a good sandwich, so perhaps am a little bit biased, but this is truly beautiful.
It’s called Scanwiches, and the name really says it all.
Such a simple & humble idea.
Who knew mung beans could be so poignant?
I especially love the opening of this LA Times article about the site’s creator (a NY graphic designer who goes by the wonderfully onomatopoeic name of Jon Chonko):
Jon Chonko looks at sandwiches the way a dendrologist might look at tree rings…
There is something touching about the way technology can help reveal the strangeness and complexity of the most prosaic things.
Personally, I will never look at my standard tuna-and-zucchini sanger in quite the same way again.
