These edible cities will make your mouth water

Creator, Andrew Nye, reminds you what makes your favorite city so delicious.

Chances are if you like to travel, you also like to eat. The combination goes hand-in-hand so seamlessly that to have one without the over feels sacrilegious.

The relationship between food and drink and a city or region isn't just superficial. Sometimes those edible items come to define a place just as much as the people do. In the illustrations of Andrew Nye, the idea of that symbiosis is played out literally and beautifully.

In a series combining food and cities, Nye weaves in iconic landmarks, transforming them into the foods they've come to represent.

Correction: food and drink...

The edible works build on Nye's portfolio of travel and commerce themed Vector graphics which also creatively weave in themes via a surrealist bend.

"Vector graphics are computer graphics images that are defined in terms of points on a Cartesian plane, which are connected by lines and curves to form polygons and other shapes."

Be careful though, with recreational travel slowed to a halt because of COVID-19, Nye's illustrations might make you extra thirsty.

So in the meantime, you can just fix yourself some tea, relax, and wait for the world to open up again.
