      Well done, this mosaic shows true dedication to the cause of edible typography. I especially like the consistency of the tomato sauce background. I hope you ate it all on buttered toast afterwards.

      It takes a lot of dedication to do this! Or is it a kind of craziness? ;-)

      I think it's the craziness in Leo - great work!

      Are you sure the I is an I and the 1 is a 1?

      Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

      How many tins did you have to open and what was the most allusive figure? !-)

      One of my favourite food games when I was a kid was biting pretzels into different letters (good on long car journeys, get the back seat full of salty crumbs). How about a pretzel alphabet?

      I try to keep to a low fat diet so buttered toast is now a luxury that I wouldn't ruin with alphabetti

      I think craziness sums it up.

      Even after four dives in the tomato sauce I couldn't find an I or a 1 so they are bits from other letters.

      Thanks for the invite.



      Just one tin of each. The I and 1 were a problem, see above. I had to be creative with the V and X. The N is a Z flipped and turned or perhaps the Z is an N flipped and turned.

      You sound like an expert so I'll leave the pretzels to you. Although they are available here they are not common.
