[cliccare il link per andare alla versione in italiano] a soup bright in color and flavor (cranberry-flax ciabatta by Beck's Bakery, linen napkin from La FABBRICA del LINO) The ninth stop of our World Culinary ABC1 is Egypt (Egitto).

[cliccare il link per andare alla versione in italiano] painted pony beans (table runners from La FABBRICA del LINO) The seventh stop of our World Culinary ABC1 is Mexico.

a simply good soup (linen napkin from La FABBRICA del LINO) Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer1 is the protagonist of Cheap Novelties, The Pleasures of Urban Decay2 by Ben Katchor. The collection of black and white strips reads like a collection of short-short stories simple on the surface, yet haunting like the dripping of a faucet that prevents us from falling asleep. Julius is out all day in a solidly urban landscape of tall buildings grou...
