About 4-5 years ago, I remember sitting in a friends' room watching her play an absolutely mesmerizing video game. I think she was a human/wolf... or a creature of some kind. I remember that the setting was exquisitely beautiful. Fractal textures, and the wooded path she ran along was hazed in mist. And I think there were two world 'settings' - a normal, bright one, and a dark version of the world, where black flecks flickered in the darker mist. I don't remember any of the plot or mechanics though, just how beautiful the world was. Like something from a Hayao Miyazaki movie. It was a personal game, not anything online... and so beautiful!

I'm writing an Asian cookbook. The recipes are mostly finished, and I'm currently testing and narrowing them down to the truly tasty. It'll be self published for friends and family, so won't need to look truly fancy. But I'm stuck for inspiration as to design and layout. So I'm looking for examples of simple but beautiful cookbook page layouts. Preferably viewable online. Suggestions?

I am used to Mac OS X and I really like the default fonts, the way anti aliasing works and the default theme as well. Now I am working with Ubuntu 8.10 on other machine, but it kind of frustrates me visually. I'd like to ask general tips on how could I make Ubuntu more visually appealing. I have found a couple of links about how to make fonts smoother. That improved a bit, bit still not there yet. I'd like to hear from you what font you use, themes, etc... So, what are the tricks you use to make your Ubuntu install beautiful?
