This week's links. Enjoy.
The September/October issue of Lonny is live — make yourself some tea and settle down to enjoy another beautiful issue.
Sweet Paul Magazine
The fall issue of Sweet Paul is up and it looks luscious — get ready for more wonderful online reading (and lots of lovely cooking and craft inspiration, too).
This lovely Australian interiors magazine is truly addictive — I'm catching up with the Aug/Sept issue and savouring every bit of it.
Michelle as Marilyn
Vogue interview with Michelle Williams, who is portraying Marilyn Monroe in the new film My Week With Marilyn. Be sure to check out the slideshow of photos of Michelle in character by Annie Leibovtiz — there's several that are quite eerie.
A visit to the fab Whirled Cinema in London — a tiny members-only theatre where the best in pre-DVD arthouse films are shown three days a week.
Fall 2011 Roundup
As fashion month comes to an end, W magazine takes a look back at some of the most memorable runway and backstage moments, captured for W by photographers Alexis Dahan and Arno Frugier.
A selection of choice quotes and interesting info about food from Lapham's Quarterly, such as this tidbit: "To celebrate King Henri III of France’s visit to Venice in 1574, a banquet table was prepared with some 1,286 items — from napkins and cutlery to figures of popes — all made from spun sugar."

In Wordless Imagery, An Immigrant's Timeless Tale
Review of The Arrival by Shaun Tan, the wordless illustrated story of a man who leaves his family in order to establish a better life for them in a distant land. This sounds wonderful.
An Australian IKEA store recently tested out the idea of having a “play space” for weary husbands and boyfriends, called Mänland. Andrew sent me this link, so I think he supports this one!
Spaghetti With Roasted Tomatoes, Garlic and Pancetta
This simple recipe by The Italian Dish sounds amazing — and it looks great on the plate, too. Perfect for a quick and elegant company dinner as well as for a family one.
