Overall, quite a good comprehensive volume of collected contemporary and period erotica - but, some does seem rather bland and mediocre, I have to say! For me, I'd hardly call Tracey Emins' contribution 'erotic'; they just look like doodles, same as Luciano Castelli's work - too slap-dash! Alison Watt's looks like . . .well . .nothing really. Picasso? Erotic? Hmm, did nothing for me!
Having said that though, there really is some cracking stuff in here - included are works by Brian Viveros, one of all-time favourites - Giger, Hajima Sorayama (cover art), Olivia De Berardinis & Isabel Samaras. There are also pieces by Magritte, Beardsley, Klimt, period Japanese and Euoropean art along with the dark distorted images of Otto Dix and Egon Schiele. Erotic art is, after all, personal choice, and one person's erotica is not necessarily anothers, so, give this volume of collected works a go. I do like the fact that each artist has a brief biog - helps to get a feel for their style, plus each chapter has a brief introduction. Overall, a good volume to own!
The book itself: well bound and a good size - fits nicely on my bookshelf!

I bought this book partly because the nature of the cover art suggested that the content was burlesque in nature. The adult nature of the artwork within was quite stronger and some of it I found difficult to keep looking at, to be honest with you. I wouldn't recommend this book for anyone below the age of eighteen. The book contains work from various artists and some of the artwork is homoerotic; the quality of the work is good and I would suggest this book for true open-minded art fans - one for the library but not for kids!
