Superb Erotic Art From A True Master
on 28 May 2012
This is a superb collection of erotic art which takes the form of soft pencil sketches depicting the a wide range of scenes from the amatory arts, mostly F/M but with some F/F and threesomes. Poulton manages to capture the poses of the human body in a way that emphasises the erotic nature of the scenes in wholly credible scenarios, but perhaps his greatest achievement lies in representing the human face as a potent indicator of the pleasurable emotions being felt in these intense scenarios. This large collection of drawings contains a good measure of either preliminary studies or amplifications, all provided integrally with their related scenes. Poulton also indulged in erotic fiction, and two of his short stories are presented here along with German and French versions. The volume is amusingly furnished with a dust-jacket which offers an inoffensive alternative on its reverse side, intended (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) to improve its acceptability when being read in a public place. This identifies the book as Immanuel Kant's (fictitious) 'The Principles of Critical Philosophy'.
