From the colophon:
                  Challenging our points of views,
we gained new perspective on the subject of nourishment.
                  What happens when one is hungry or overeats?
What is the most savory, or the smelliest food?
                  We chopped, sliced, peeled, carved.
We found inspiration in Wallace Stevens'
                  "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird."
We learned the niceties of woodcutting
                  from our Goudy lecturer, Margaret Prentice.
We documented the whole process in many different media,
                  and of course, we tasted.
