WORTH A MENTION
What we’re loving on the box, the web and wherever. TV: New Zealand’s Next Top Model – four weeks in and the drama is high, not to mention the hair and the heels. Winter comfort viewing. DVD: If you liked Seinfeld, you’ll love Curb Your Enthusiasm – Larry David takes social awkwardness to a new level. Catch up now before the eighth season comes out. WEB: informationisbeautiful.net – Infographics have never been so hot. Creator David McCandless visualises data from dietary supplements to time travel in films. The book of the same name is incredible too. BOOKSHELF: Penguin’s Great Food series condenses the best work of 20 great food writers, from Brillat-Savarin to Claudia Roden, into slim stylish volumes. Each book is decorated with ceramic art contemporary to the author.
