Destined to become must-have visual sourcebooks for all those who love fashion, the new Vogue Portfolio series launches in autumn 2014 with Vogue: The Gown by Vogue's Features Director, Jo Ellison.

Illustrated with fabulous images from VOGUE's archive of more than a million pictures, VOGUE: The Gown is destined to become the ultimate must-have visual sourcebook for all those who love fashion.

Something about a gown's intricate construction, unashamed opulence and sheer feminine romance ignites in us the promise of fairy-tale adventure and unparalleled glamour. The magical gowns featured here give full reign to those fantasies, be they the sublime yet simple classical creations of Madame Grès, the heavenly bodies sculpted by Azzedine Alaïa, the lean seductive lines of a Deco-inspired silhouette or huge tulle pouffs fit for a princess.

In Vogue: The Gown Jo Ellison has curated a collection of more than 300 fabulous images and grouped them into five thematic chapters: Classical, Fantasy, Drama, Decorative and Modernist. The book provides both an evocative celebration of almost a century of fashion history while also showcasing the work of the very best photographers including Tim Walker, Mario Testino, Nick Knight, David Bailey, Herb Ritts, Norman Parkinson, Corinne Day, Cecil Beaton and Horst.

Aperitivo

Kay Plunkett-Hogge
Authors:
Kay Plunkett-Hogge

Let's be honest: who doesn't want to be a little bit Italian? To glide through Rome on a Vespa like Marcello Mastroianni, wearing an impeccable suit? Or sit in St Mark's Square in Venice at dusk, nibbling cicchetti and sipping an Aperol spritz? This is la dolce vita, and this is aperitivo - Italy's take on drinks and small snacks.Aperitivo brings together 80 recipes from across Italy, and tells the stories behind the food and the drinks that shape the aperitif hour. The book opens with the aperitivi themselves - Campari and Aperol - as well as recipes for classic Italian cocktails (including the perfect Negroni) and a guide to Italian wine. Kay then introduces simple recipes for Antipasto and Pinzimonio; Tramezzini; Bruschette and Crostini; Seafood; Meat and Fowl; Vegetables, Dairy and Eggs; Bread and Baking; and Dolci. So let's cinch in our waists, pop on some cat's eye sunglasses, and make like Sophia Loren. It's time for Aperitivo.

One hundred of Gordon's beautiful photos are given his own expert commentary; full settings and camera details are included, and a host of tips and tricks let photographers of any level learn something from every example. The shots are taken with a wide range of cameras, and the emphasis is on getting results by improving your own skills, not wasting money on expensive equipment.

Judith Miller
Authors:
Judith Miller

'...one of the most friendly, easygoing and instructive books on the design movement' Chicago TribuneArts & Crafts is one of the most influential design movements of all time, beginning in the late 19th century and still being explored by designers today.

This invaluable guide covers furniture, ceramics, silver and metalware, glass, textiles, jewellery, books and posters, and includes fascinating profiles of key designers such as William Morris, the Stickleys, Liberty & Co, Tiffany Studios, George Ohr, Rookwood and many more. It comes with a pictorial design directory, price ranges and a wealth of essential information for collectors and anyone wishing to follow William Morris's golden rule of Arts & Crafts: 'Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.'
