And Then There Were None (Facsimile Edition) by Agatha Christie

After many years of this facsimile edition being promised, then withdrawn, it has finally been published by Harper Collins with a mixed US and UK facsimile of the original dust jacket, the front cover being the original 1940 US version.

Barbarella (Bob Crewe-Charles Fox) ~ Ost

I definitely recommend trying spelt pasta.
