Website The Re-Craft has this piece on the Kniggerich, a simple instructional placemat designed by llotllov, that helps you be at your best for that fancy dinner.

The placemat is named after Mr. Knigge, who actually sounds like quite the etiquette-nutsy:

[Mr. Knigge] once wrote a book On Human Relations, a treatise on the fundamental principles of human relations that has the reputation of being the authoritative guide to behaviour, politeness, and etiquette. The German term "Knigge" has become to mean "good manners".
The placemat is not only a educational device, it is also amusing how strict some rules are.
