Hey, carb fans. It's been a tough go lately for your favorite food category, maligned and summarily rejected by fad diets from Atkins to Paleo. But you know the truth: Carbs are delicious—and there's not a dang thing wrong with them in moderation, either.

Sound like you? Well then we found your new kitchen art. The "The Plethora of Pasta Permutations" poster charts more than 250 shapes of the stuff, categorized by ones that come from machines (like penne and rigatoni) and those that are often hand crafted (tagliatelle, gnocchi). You'll see variations found only in some remote Italian villages, as well as the more ordinary goodness you find in standard super markets everywhere.

Each poster is signed and numbered by the artists from a first printing of 500, costs $32 from Pop Chart Lab, and can be finished off with a kitchen-ready frame.

Fly your pasta flag with pride!
