"pleasure, pretty please"
This beautiful little book is part of a limited edition of 100, hand-bound using traditional Japanese bookbinding techniques, printed on recycled ivory parchment and housed in a soft, matte black paper sleeve corseted up the back in red thread.
The book measures 5.25x8.25in (13.3x21cm). It is signed and marked with the edition number inside.
This book houses a collection of 12 of my original illustrations directly inspired by shunga, the erotic woodblock prints from sixteenth-eighteenth century Japan. Translated to “spring” - a euphemism for sex –shunga were also known as “pillow books” and served a few known purposes: they were kept as good luck charms by firemen and samurai (single men – how coincidental!), and given to new brides for ‘instructional use’. These illustrations result in some of the most beautiful porn in the world. Read Less
