Eating Anthropocene. Curd Rice, Bienenstich and a Pinch of Phosphorus – Around the World in Ten Dishes.

Berlin: Springer.

Very unusual and interdisciplinary – a science comic featuring international contributors Describes the current state of the global food situation by way of individual stories told as comics – and dares to take a look into the future Based on the core ideas of the highly topical concept of the Anthropocene, which regards man as the central shaping force of the physical world After their broadly reviewed comic »The Great Transformation«, project initiators Alexandra Hamann and Reinhold Leinfelder have once again created a work that demonstrates how complex scientific topics can be made comprehensible in comic-book form As one of the key projects emerging from the Cluster of Excellence »Image Knowledge Gestaltung« at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, this book combines fascinating science with exquisite design.
