THE PILLOW BOOK EROTIC SENTIMENT AND PAINTINGS OF INDIA, NEPAL, CHINA & JAPAN
The Pillow Book: The Erotic Sentiment and the Paintings of India, Nepal, China and Japan by Nik Douglas and Penny Slinger (1981) "Since ancient times, the Orient has viewed lovemaking as one of the highest art forms. This has been true among the followers of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism, who have sought to exalt the spirit through the flesh... This volume presents 130 illustrations of erotic scenarios and love postures: exquisite Chinese works originally painted on silk; Japanese Shunga prints and paintings, ecstatic love scenes from various parts of India and the finest examples from a unique series of Nepalese paintings created for the private collection of a king of Nepal... The art and philosophy that emerge from The Pillow Book are a celebration of sexual union as the human counterpart to the cosmic act of creation." 142 pp. *NUDITY
