Fetish Fashion - Undressing The Corset
I love the book.. but then that may be because I'm in it.
Nah, Larry Utley was great to work with and I'm very proud to be a part of this awesome book!
Buy it... read it... drool over the beautiful women, (and some men) in tight laced corsets. I love page 86, 42 and oh check out page 46! Don't forget to look for me, page 52 "Slave Dove" bare breasted in a red vinyl corset and ball-gag. Corset laces have a magical effect... the tighter they are the hotter I get!!

Bondage: Laura Manson Stansfield Photocollection, Laura Manson Stansfield (Goliath, 2000)
This is a compelling collection of 30 years of erotic bondage photos accumulated by a psychiatrist during the course of therapy of her most important patient: a troubled young man at the brink of being jailed as a pornographer. Michael B. was the inadvertent catalyst for cultural change in the early 1960's, when he was arrested under the now defunct, and then antiquated, Comstock Law, for being in possession of the photographs now depicted in this fascinating book. A captivating taste of the past and its strictures, Bondage offers one provocative subject in one thrilling collection! Fetish : Masterpieces of Erotic Fantasy Photography, Tony Mitchell (Thunder's Mouth Press, 2000), $20.96.

Fetish: Masterpieces of Erotic Fantasy Photography collects the best of this exciting genre, combining the finest contemporary images with some of photography's most notable pre-scene manifestations - images from 1950s underground and bondage publications; kinky creations from the '60s; and glamour work from the '70s and '80s. With 220 color, duotone, and black-and-white images from leading fetish photographers like Peter Ashworth, Chris Bell, Laurent Boeki, Wolfgang Eichler, and Horst P. Horst, and insight into fetish clubs and fashion houses, Fetish will excite connoisseur and curious alike.
Fetish Art, Doesjka Bee (2000)
It is the presentation of fetish as artin design and photographythat makes this book so exceptional. Art is abstract and focused at one and the same time. The effect does not stop at voyeuristic superficiality, but touches the very core and essence of the world of fetish fashion that has now become socially acceptable. Robin Cay Noorda photographs the breathtaking creations of fetish designer Doesjka Bramlage. Instead of soulless, shiny outfits, he imbues his photographs with atmosphere and insinuation, alongside a strong charge of eroticism. The result of this mutual inspiration is an exciting series of images thatlike Bramlage's designsroll back the boundaries of conventional fetish aesthetics.

The Beauty of Fetish: Volume 2, Steve Diet Goedde
An exceptionally exquistite book that combines both colour and black and white on such beautifully glossy pages. Steve's images always have a habit of sticking in my brain, continually exciting me wherever I go and dream. Very stylish and intelligent and not the typical "in your face" imagery that everyone else seems to do. Like they say, he is a master of powerful yet subtle eroticism. Both of his books will stay on my shelves and in my mind for many years to come.

Eric Kroll's Fetish Girls, Eric Kroll, $3.99. Fetish Girls is Eric Kroll's blazing, 200-page tribute to all the photographers, models, and fetishists that have inspired him through his life: Nam Paik, Weegee, Man Ray, Elmer Batters, Betty Page, Bunny Yeager, Eric Stanton, John Willie, Irving and Paula Klaw, Bill Ward, and Marcel Duchamp, just to name a few.
A glorious tribute to his predecessors it may be, it is nonetheless a delicious exposé of the incredibly creative work that he himself has created over the years. Beautiful, succulent beauties are flaunted throughout, adorned in an endless variety of kinky clothing and erotic toys.

They pose powerfully as dominators; innocuously as sexual furniture; and provocatively as they shove their crotches in our face.
