In Italy and Mediterranean France the culture of wine and the world of fashion are elegantly entwined and today each holds up one end of the standard of quality and sophistication that consumers all over the world recognize as "European." Designer Paola Caovilla's book shows just how long ago-and how artfully-fashion and design incorporated wine culture into its own. Her selection of iconographic material from fashion and art history shows the connection again and again: the grape leaf as a standard element in illuminated manuscripts to the grapevine chalice as the basis of Capucci's extraordinary dresses in the eighties. Wine's rich colors, shapes and motifs emerge from splendid jewelry, dresses, textiles, accessories and in shop displays that are pictured here with quotes and flashes of insight that dance the reader through the colors, scents, and tastes of the past and present of two preeminently European traditions.

The modern society of consumption is a society of fashion. Fashion has extended its influence over various fields of social life and, together with taste, become central to our understanding of the inner dynamics of any modern society. The Sociology of Taste looks at the role of taste - or the aesthetic reflection - in society at large and in modern society in particular. Taking case studies from social life, for example eating and food culture, it illustrates the role of fashion in the formation of collective taste.

Melbourne grew during the 19th century from its fledgling roots into a global metropolitan centre, and was home to many people from a range of social and cultural backgrounds. The Martin family arrived in Melbourne in 1839 and soon established themselves at the genteel Viewbank estate near Heidelberg. They were typical of the early, middle-class immigrants to Melbourne who brought their gentility and privilege with them to the colony. The Martins spent many years at Viewbank, and the physical remains they left behind provide a valuable case study for examining class negotiation in the colony through historical archaeology. In this important study, material culture is used to understand the unique way in which the Martin family used gentility to establish and maintain their class position.
