What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, With Slipcase

Complete in two volumes. First collected edition. Illustrated with drawings and photographs throughout. A complete reprint of the fetish magazine Bizarre, which was published, at irregular intervals, from 1946 to 1959. With volume one containing issues one to thirteen and volume two containing issues fourteen to twenty-six. The magazine included many photographs, often of Willie's wife, and drawings of costume designs. There were also many letters from readers which covered topics such as high heels, bondage, amputee fetishism, sadomasochism, transvestism, corsets, and body modification. Despite the nature of the magazine, Coutts was able to circumvent censorship and orders to cease publication because he was careful to avoid "nudity, homosexuality, overt violence, or obvious depictions of things that might be read as perverse or immoral." Produced by John Alexander Scott Coutts, better known by the pseudonym John Willie, a British artist, fetish photographer, cartoonist, and the publisher and editor. Edited by Eric David Kroll, an American photojournalist, fetish photographer, erotica historian, and book editor.
