The Geometry of Pasta

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2011

How do you know which pasta shape goes with which sauce? As any Italian will tell you, this makes the difference between pasta dishes that are merely ordinary, and the truly sublime. In this book, simple, geometric, actual-size black-and-white drawings of pasta shapes were used to demonstrate their differences and help identify the individual characteristics that make them suited to particular sauces. Also provided are dimensions of each shape, a brief history of its evolution and the perfect sauce recipe for it.
