But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.’

In fact,’ said Mustapha Mond, ‘you’re claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have syphilis and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.’ There was a long silence.

'FOOD MAPS' - Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin map the world’s most famous foods.

Brooklyn-based photographer Henry Hargreaves (check out this amazing Tumblr!) and food stylist Caitlin Levinmotivated by a passion for travel, have created ‘Food Maps’, a playful cartography series of geographical locations made out of the iconic foods that best represent them. Painstakingly crafted with real, unadulterated food, the silhouettes are packed with edible materials — corn in various forms fills the United States, vibrantly colored kiwis compose New Zealand and biscuit bits build the United Kingdom.
