I feel all the tension release from my body. It was amazing. When you work at something really hard, then working at something else is a vacation.

Final post (for today!) on reusing books:
The retailer Anthropologie (previously here), known for its wildly creative window displays, put dozens of altered books to use in this store display.

Paris restaurant invites an amateur cook to become head chef each night
France is a country renowned for its culinary tradition, yet these traditions show no sign of standing in the way of innovation. We recently saw Restolib turn Paris restaurant kitchens into spaces for cooking classes after hours, and now Un Jour, Un Chef is going one step further and allowing amateurs to realise their dreams of becoming head chef for one night.

Fascinating!
