Arts and Food Combined--unique Nov. 25 2011
By George Erdosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This highly unusual and unique book is so excellent as to be in a class of its own. It is not a cookbook--there no cooking involved (well, just a little here and there like frying bacon), and it is not a coffee table book because of its unlikely small size for a coffee table. Yet it is a book you want to own both to enjoy for reading its superb text, and to enjoy slowly flipping through the pages for the great photos.||The author lists 68 sandwiches in alphabetic order in the Table of Contents with thumbnail photos above the names. He prepared each of these sandwiches, cut them in half, placed them cut side down on a scanner and their scanned images now appear under their entry. They are imaginative, unique, and each is accompanied by text worth careful reading (not just scanning). The background of pages are squid-ink black, the text white (yet easy to read). Under many sandwiches interesting tips, trivia and variations appear. Additional illustrations are also excellent. Next to French Dip sandwiches, e.g., sketches illustrate, step 1: dip; step 2: bite; step 3: repeat. Even if you hate sandwiches, this book is highly recommended.

AWESOME Nov. 8 2011
By J. Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A lot of blogs that become books just re-print a bunch of old stuff and call it a day. Not Scanwiches. If the blog is just about drooling over sexy sandwich scans, the book is about drooling over sexy sandwich scans AND learning. Read it for the articles! Scanwiches is packed with sandwich facts, sandwich history, and sandwich recipes. It's a great gift for anyone who eats food.

Ate it all in one sitting - stuffed Nov. 11 2011
By omg yum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Scanwiches surprises on every level. Not only are the cross-sections mouth-wateringly delicious (literally making up words - that good) BUT Chonko's descriptions and historical backgrounds are effortlessly charming and funny. Never did I expect to open a book about sandwiches and laugh out loud.

I would 100% recommend as a coffee table book or-more appropriately-as inspiration for your cooking adventures. Chonko started his blog as a personal challenge to liven up his lunch break, vowing never to scan the same sandwich twice. Personally my eyes have been opened and my tummy is so grateful. Scanwiches is THE Bible for all food junkies and enthusiasts.

It's little wonder why this book is so widely publicized, perfect holiday, graduation....scratch that, PERFECT GIFT, period!

Never before has knowledge made me salivate so Nov. 10 2011
By Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I purchased Scanwiches for the sandwich porn. I'm a man who loves a good sandwich, loves daydreaming about what I'll have for lunch tomorrow. And anyone who's seen the blog knows just how mouth-wateringly awesome these scanned cross-sections are. What blows me away about the book though is the depth of information it gives about all the sandwiches.... The book is equal part appetite-accelerant and encyclopedia. Recipes for each sandwich, the history of the sandwich and why its importance within the local culture.

I'm so hungry now. Time for a banh mi.

Great for reference when my kids' lunches become boring! Also a great reminder of vacations where I have enjoyed some of these sandwiches.
