The Essence of Perfume

Roja Dove

Black dog / 2009 / 9781906155490 / 288 psl. / 30.0 x 21.0 cm

Roja Dove’s passion for fragrance is contagious. As the world’s leading perfume authority, Dove leads us on a fascinating journey through the world of scent, from Ancient Egypt, where myth has it that the fragrance Kypi induced mass surrender, through to the 1920s, when the husband of a Hollywood legend maddened by his love and frustrated by his impotence, drenched himself in his wife’s perfume before ending his life. We read about the bitter rivalry between Coco Chanel and “that Italian”, Elsa Schiaparelli, and how this inspired some of history’s most iconic scents.

The Essence of Perfume is the first book by the world’s only Professeur de Parfums, and it is as captivating as it is informative. Beginning with a comprehensive discussion of the sense of smell and the materials of the master perfumer, The Essence of Perfume goes on to celebrate the great classics, the makers who brought them to life and the designers who gave them shape. In an age where the methods and motivations of the original perfumers are all but forgotten, Roja Dove unfolds the gripping story of scent with all the passion and devotion of a true artist.

Out of the Ordinary HB

Laurie Britton Newell, ed

Victoria and Albert Museum / 2006 / 9781851775248 / 114 psl. /

This is a unique look at a group of international artists who place craft at the heart of their practice, transforming everyday subjects and ordinary materials into works that are out of the ordinary.

The book features unusual works including the ephemeral ice and chocolate jewellery of Naomi Filmer, the almost hidden installations by Yoshihiro Suda, thread and lace-work of Anne Wilson and found metal sculptures by Olu Amoda. These innovative artists show that craft is a fundamental concern across many disciplines, and this redirection of materials and traditional techniques and use of scale achieves extraordinary outcomes.

The Steppe and Other Stories

Chekhov, Anton

Oxford University Press / Trade Book / 2006 / 0192836986 / 9780192836984 / 272 Paperback/ 196x129

The first of Chekhov's works to be published in a serious literary journal, `The Steppe', with its masterly account of a spectacular thunderstorm, signifies his maturation as a writer of short stories. While the majority of his tales focus on the privileged classes, this selection shows that Chekhov never forgot his origins as the son of a failed provincial grocer, and characters as varied as the brutal soldier in `Gusev', the downtrodden old constable in `On Official Business', and the bemused peasants in `New Villa' testify to the power and flexibility of his art.
