    I recommend this book highly to anyone with a passing interest in pasta:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Geometry-Pasta-Jacob-Kenedy/dp/0752227378
    It's a concise guide to every type of pasta (certainly that I've ever heard of) with brilliantly specific descriptions and illustrations (the design of the book is a joy) with many recipes to fit each type of paste.
    It goes some way to adhere to the Italian rule of certain pastas matching certain sauces/dressings (the bending of this rule being utterly inconceivable to most Italians) but it also acknowledges that authenticity can be restrictive and suggests alternatives for all recipes and pasta types.
    It's also wittily written and looks great. I picked it up for £3 at The Works so it's worth looking in there if you have one near you.
    Their website is very good as well and gives you a flavour of the book:

    I have never understood this: it is like saying I will eat a piece of round cake, but not a slice of square cake or a fairy cake!
    Weird
