The August 2009 issue of the graphic-design trade magazine Print is dedicated to food. The magazine has done several themed issues throughout its history, but this is the first to deal primarily with the design culture of food.
Stories in the issue include a look at packaging that has never changed (hello, Happy Boy!), an inside look at food photographers and food styling, and a photo essay on designers cooking (with the designers' recipes—including Serious Eats fave Swissmiss—to appear on the Print website in the next week or so, I'm told).
Sorry for the lack of links; a little birdie at Print says they're waiting to launch their website redesign before uploading stories from the current issue. But you can buy the actual printed product; it's on newsstands now.
