New York City graphic designer Jon Chonko has been faithfully scanning his sandwiches since February 20, 2009 (#12 below was the first ever). He posts the results on his addictive tumblr site Scanwiches.com. From the colossal Dagwood to the classic BLT, you’ll find an extensive archive of both homemade and store-bought sandwiches.
The successful blog has led to prints and a book. Keep up the great work Jon!
