Issue #77 Eyebrows For Icons
Everywhere we turn this week, depressing news. So when we thought about what to put in this issue, we decided to focus on light-hearted and optimistic fodder as we cruise into the month of May. Hope your midweek is going swimmingly.

The Cook — The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School by Alison Cayne is one of the most revolutionary, enlightening cookbooks we own. As chef Tom Colicchio put it, “If you have always dreamed of cooking—not just following recipes—this is the only book you will ever need.”
The Book — We’re known for recommending dark fiction but if you’re looking for something witty and nostalgic (with a splash of bitters), read Lillian Boxfish Takes A Walk by Kathleen Rooney.
The Beauty — Great eyebrows can make a face go from blah to awe-inspiring, regardless of gender. We paid rapt attention to this Supermodel Brow Lift video by English makeup artist, Wayne Goss, our new favorite beauty guru.
The Throwback — It’s not yet Thursday but The What founders AP + GP are reminiscing about the implausibly stunning Castello di Volognano in Florence, an 11th century castle they shared with friends one summer in the mid-aughts. It remains the best vacation on record.
The Genius — We’ve been waiting with baited breath for the premier ofGenius, the original series about Albert Einstein on NatGeo. Geoffrey Rush stars as the senior hot-blooded brainiac. However, if you’re thinking about watching with the kids, know that it opens with a violent assassination then cuts to a mature, married Professor Einstein in flagrante delicto with a pretty colleague, her back against a chalkboard. Promising first episode. Watch here.
