DSC_4680pasta bookDSC_4676

I'm not an impulse buyer...but for Friday night date night, Cree and I went to a book shop with only an intention to look, but then I found this pasta book...and it was on I bought it. The design is amazing. Everything is black and white (brilliant!) and every illustration is vector. There are full bleeds and crazy patterns and an impeccable grid. I was basically drooling, so we decided it was most definitely worthy of our home library.

This weekend was full of a whole lot of work. We woke up at 6:30 am on Saturday and didn't stop working until 7pm. That said, we love our that helps. We did have time to sneak in a movie...or three. It's still bitter cold here, so we opted for a weekend in. We watched Catch Me If You Can (love the opening credits...also did you hear it's going to be a musical??!?) on friday night, Cinderella Man on Saturday night and then Young Victoria (SO GOOD!) on Sunday night.  Once again, our local library saved the weekend.


  1. Absolutely beautiful book! I'll have to show it to Mike - he loves that sort of stuff too!

    Still bitter cold here too, if that makes you feel better! We had similar weekends - lots of work, peppered with arrested development episodes. Unfortunately, I also got rather sick was a gross twist on the weekend.

    Hope you have a great week, Amanda!

  2. I can see why you bought this book, such gorgeous design yes!
    I still have to watch The Young Victoria, it's been on my movie list for awhile now. Loved Catch me if you can and didn't know it was going to be a musical!
    Have a great week!

  3. Boy, the library always comes through with great finds!

  4. Gorgeous book! I had spotted it months back. I also saw this post last week and wandered into borders over the weekend (they just announced going out of business sales) and laid eyes on this book! I knew I had to pick it up and hold onto it for my boyfriend who will certainly adore it. I think it is a great impulse buy!

  5. Well done, girl! Would have bought it too. Wish there were more alternative bookstores in my neighborhood!
