“Food porn at its finest” Huffington Post
“’I try to capture the view of a sandwich right before you take a bite.’”
Jon Chonko, Food & Wine
“Spectacular scans of sandwiches, sliced crosswire to reveal their mouthwatering innards.”
Bites on Today.com
“’The sandwich has never appeared more sublime…and that's why we love the site: for its commitment to proving the beauty inherent in a food that's often overlooked aesthetically, and for teaching us how to look at sandwiches in a whole new way.”
"The Best Thing Between Sliced Bread"
-The Wall Street Journal
"This highly unusual and unique book is so excellent it is in a class of its own."
-San Francisco & Sacramento Book Review
About the Author
Jon Chonko is a graphic designer, photographer, writer, and unashamed foodie. The direct result of a good first date between his parents at a sandwich shop many years ago, Chonko has spent the last two years scouring New York’s delis, cafes, and markets for the city’s most eye-catching sandwiches. In the process Chonko has become an expert on all-things-between-bread and a (very) minor Internet celebrity thanks to his blog scanwiches.com. His unique take on sandwiches has been featured in many publications, including Wired, The New York Times, Print, and The Washington Post as well as in person at ROLFcon 2009 at MIT. Besides sandwiches, Chonko is an avid cyclist and kite enthusiast. He lives with his girlfriend and their cat in Brooklyn, New York.

Some people say this is not a coffee table book, but this is totally a leave it out for others to see book. Awesome!!
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!
