Apples I have Eaten

All of the apples in this little hardcover book were printed at actual size. Every apple is a different variety ( 47 kinds total) and are labeled as such. On the left of every spread is the apple whole, on the right page, it’s the apple sliced in half. The author of this book, Jonathan Gerken, gathered all of these apples during the fall of a single year from local farmer’s markets, orchards and neighbors, all from California. He photographed each of them…and then he ate them. Macintosh’s have always been my favorite kind, but Jonathan mentioned the Belle de Boskoop apple tasted like pie, so I’m willing to try some of these other kinds. Yum! In just a few months it will be apple picking season again but until then enjoy this book.
