Venus in Furs, by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, is THE classic romance of tragic sado-masochistic eroticism, depicting Severin's intense adoration for Wanda, his overwhelming desire to be her slave and their developing relationship.
This is a totally new edition, with exclusive illustrations by Sardax, the world's leading femdom artist. There are ten sumptuous full-page watercolours and twenty line-and-wash drawings.
The edition also features a new translation from the original German, also by Sardax himself, so this really is a very special collector's item.
This notorious novel was first published in 1870, giving rise to the term “masochism” and it has never been out of print since. It has inspired songs and the stage play “Venus in Furs,” by David Ives, which was later filmed by the equally notorious director Roman Polanski. Sardax describes his own new edition of Venus in Furs as his labour of love. He started over ten years ago, having found previous versions badly translated and crudely illustrated.
A de-luxe new hardback, this limited edition is printed on super quality art paper, with the illustrations in full colour. It is an absolute must for devotees of the book and it's the perfect gift for anyone exploring the magical world of female domination of the submissive male.
Hardback, 220 x 146 mm. 138 pages, including 10 full page watercolours and 20 line illustrations. Silver blocked hard cover, with dust jacket. Each book is shrink wrapped to keep it pristine.
