With the possible exception of the eyes, no other part of the face is as burdened with legend, myth and significance as the nose.

Cabinetissue 64, with a special section on "The Nose," includes Christopher Turner on Smell-O-Vision, Aromarama and other failed technologies for making cinema into an olfactory event; Jennifer Greenberg on how European colonialists characterized the relationship between race and nose shape; Anthony Harley on the political history of rhinoplasty in the US; and Thiago Carvalho on the new scientific work on the relationship between smell, immunity and mating among animals. Elsewhere in the issue: Adam Bobbette on Indonesian men who train young birds to sing the songs of extinct birds; Indiana Seresin on the way a mythic Native American indigeneity has been used by children at American summer camps; Ara Merjian on the Situationists' uses of Giorgio de Chirico's early paintings, and more.
