This week's links. Enjoy.
Echoes of Genius
From The New Yorker: "An uncanny coincidence in the letters of Margaret Fuller and Emily Dickinson points to a common predicament of women isolated by their brilliance." Really interesting essay by Judith Thurman, accompanied by a lovely illustration by Maira Kalman.
Top 10 Eggs on Film Moments
AnOther Magazine gets in the Easter mood with this list of eggs in the movies, from Paul Newman betting he can eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in an hour in Cool Hand Luke to Sigourney Weaver's spooky spontaneously frying eggs in Ghost Busters.
Just finished reading the latest issue of the new-to-me Curio Magazine, a great UK-based e-mag about interiors, people, life and style, with a little more text than is usual with design mags. Make yourself a cup of tea and settle in for an inspiring read.
Ten Offbeat Bathrooms
Architizer recently put together a slide show of 10 bizarre bathrooms from around the world. Some are fun, some are just ... odd.
12 Things Julianne Moore Can't Live Without
The wonderful Julianne Moore draws up a list for Elle Decor of 12 things she can't live without, from Noguchi lamps and Tom Ford reading glasses to green tea brewed in her favourite Japanese iron teapot.
Rainy Day Music
Spring is on its way and that means showery weather. Richard Williams picks appropriate mood music for rainy days from The Ronettes, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan and Eurythmics among others.
The Edible Hotel
Eat Your Heart Out, a collective of food artists, recently transformed a three-story “hotel” into a Wonka-esque candyland for a one-night-only installation. Guests checked out (and, I imagine, sampled) meringue rugs, vanilla sponge cushions, and much more. Eight rooms in all were created, with each dedicated to showcasing the unique properties of specific sugars (the sponsor was a sugar company, natch). Follow the link for photos and a video of the event.
A perfect sweet for the holidays (they're kosher for Passover as well as for Easter) — and simple to make, too. Another plus — they're gluten-free! Recipe by Cookie & Kate via Saveur.
