Gastro Obscura Vending Machine

This fall Atlas Obscura is promoting the launch of our much-anticipated culinary book Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer's Guide and will be touring a custom vending machine featuring the book alongside other rare and unusual food and drink items from around the world.
