This is a big, beautiful catalog of the art and artifacts found in the Erotic Museum in Berlin, Germany. It has crisp, full-color photographs of thousands of items from this premier collection, including paintings, illustrations, engravings, artifacts, sculpture, decorative arts, and many other objects - all with a sexual or erotic theme. Some of these are famous and recognizable, but most are unique and unlike anything you have ever seen before. Every photo has a caption describing the piece, and the accompanying text (by world-renowned expert and collector, Hans-Jürgen Döpp) discusses the history and development of this important genre.
A note of warning, this book contains explicit sexual imagery, much of it unusual and unconventional, so if you are easily shocked (and don't like being shocked!) then this is not for you. It would make a fine coffee-table book (if there are no children in your household) and an excellent conversation piece if you have open-minded visitors. But most of all, this book is absolutely essential for collectors or connoisseurs of erotica. Your library is incomplete without it!
