If you’re a fan of the magazine, you may have noticed some unusual sandwich photos in the back pages of our most recent november issue. We decided to take a more graphic approach to thanksgiving leftovers this year and were inspired by one of our favorite blogs of the past year: scanwiches. If the blog’s name didn’t give you a hint as to how we created these images, then these behind-the-scenes photos will make it clear.

Using a basic flatbed scanner, we literally slapped the sandwiches down and scanned them... drips, smears, crumbs and all. It took a little experimenting and some tasting of course, but the results are more impressive than one would imagine. For all of our editor's sandwich ideas, make sure to check out the Leftovers section in our november issue. And in case any of you are wondering, we all ate very well that day. Happy Thanksgiving!
