Certain to appeal to a broad audience, this book celebrates our everyday lives in an all-new way.

Pasta by Design by Paola Antonelli Pasta by Design, Hardback (September 2011)

Takes a fresh look at pasta, one of the world's most popular foods. It compiles and profiles 92 different kinds of pasta, classifying them into types using the science of phylogeny (the study of relatedness among natural forms).

Talk to Me by Paola Antonelli Talk to Me, Paperback (August 2011)

Published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this title thrives on an important late 20th-century cultural development in design: a shift from the centrality of function to that of meaning.
