The photo looks like the larger, Israeli, couscous; but the author doesn't specify, so you can choose whichever you like. I myself prefer the mouthfeel (and flavor absorption) of regular, smaller, couscous. You can also find whole wheat couscous
of the regular/smaller grain. Gives a nice nuttiness to your dish.

"standard" couscous rather than the Israeli is what I have used. Have you tried this stuff from the shop? It's amazing:
