About this book
In everyone's imagination Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) will forever remain a woman of breath-taking sex appeal and unparalleled beauty - a myth that transcends continents and generations. Bert Stern, the famous advertisement and fashion photographer of the 60s, was the last to be granted a sitting by Marilyn Monroe - six weeks before her tragic death. The three-day session, which was arranged by Vogue and took place at the Los Angeles Bel-Air Hotel, yielded nearly 2,600 pictures - fashion, portraits and nude studies - of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy, of which vogue selected no more than twenty for publication. And yet these few photographs ineradicably shaped our image of Marilyn Monroe. The monumental body of work by the master photographer and the Hollywood actress, the most gifted photo model of her day, both quantitatively and qualitatively marks a climax in the history of star photography. A unique affirmation of the erotic dimension of photography and the eroticism of taking photographs, it is still the world's finest and largest tribute to Marilyn Monroe. Out of print for some time, our volume presenting the complete set of 2,571 photos is now available again in an unaltered edition. In his foreword, Bert Stern relates the planning and course of this unusual sitting that was to become a memorable and unrepeatable event for all involved - and especially for posterity.
Esposito's luscious accounts of the wonderful food and wine that are so much a part of Italian life make "Passion on the Vine" an utterly unique and enchanting work about Italy and its eternally seductive lifestyle.
About this book
As a young child in Naples, Italy, Sergio Esposito sat at his kitchen table observing the daily ritual of his large, loud family bonding over fresh local dishes and simple country wines. While devouring the rich bufala mozzarella, still sopping with milk and salt, and the platters of fresh prosciutto, sliced so thin he could see through it, he absorbed the profound relationship of food, wine, and family in Italian culture.Growing up in Albany, New York, after emigrating there with his family, he always sat next to his uncle Aldo and sipped from his wineglass during their customary hours-long extended family feasts. Thus, from a very early age, Esposito came to associate wine with the warmth of family, the tastes of his mother’s cooking—and, above all, memories of his former life in Italy. When he was in his twenties, he headed for New York and undertook a career in wine, beginning a journey that would culminate in his founding of Italian Wine Merchants, now the leading Italian wine source in America. His career offered him the opportunity to make frequent trips back to Italy to find wine for his clients, to learn the traditions of Italian winemaking, and, in so doing, to rediscover the Italian way of life he’d left behind.Passion on the Vine is Esposito’s intimate and evocative memoir of his colorful family life in Italy, his abrupt transition to life in America, and of his travels into the heart of Italy—its wine country—and the lives of those who inhabit it. The result is a remarkably engaging and entertaining wine/travel narrative replete with vivid portraits of seductive places—the world-famous cellars of Piedmont, the sweeping estates of Tuscany, the lush fields of Campania, the chilly hills of Friuli, the windy beaches of Le Marche; and of memorable people, diverse and vibrant wine artisans—from a disco-dancing vintner who bases his farming on the rhythm of the moon to an obsessive prince who destroys his vineyards before his death so that his grapes will never be used incorrectly.Esposito’s luscious accounts of the wonderful food and wine that are so much a part of Italian life, and his poignant and often hilarious stories of his relationships with his family and Italian friends, make Passion on the Vine an utterly unique and enchanting work about Italy and its eternally seductive lifestyle.
