New York, 1990s: Gustav Glander has over night become one of the biggest artists of the city, famous for his works and actions as leader of the Eat Art movement. But soon after this success he disappears without a trace. Hamburg, twelve years later: Gerd Mönninghaus, food critic, seems to recognize Glander in a restaurant and starts researching… Stevan Paul – food stylist, journalist and writer – tries to find out in his novel what declares food to art. The book design mixes elements of both worlds: A textured linen cover with embossed centred white typography – as you can find it on several cook books. But some details break this cliché and transfer it to the art world as well: the bright turquoise colour, the name “Glander” written in rough strokes and the little icons of a brush. Enjoy the story of love, coming home and the freedom of always reinventing yourself!
