Famous meals from literature

While we've spent a large portion of the last month recreating meals from famous movies, a rather dedicated graphic designer called Dinah Fried has decided to go down the literary route.

She chose five meals from classic books and took a set of brilliantly minimalist photos so we can see what they would actually look like.

Unsurprisingly, we'd be choosing the cheese sandwich on toast with a chocolate milkshake from Catcher in the Rye over Oliver Twist's bowl of porridge. That portion looks a bit measly...

The Catcher In The Rye

Moby Dick

Alice In Wonderland

Oliver Twist

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
