It was very difficult to choose which pages to include in the book's description. When you pick it up and flip through it you will be overwhelmed by the number of eroguro works contained inside!

The Japanese rope bondage charms made by Kitanya Design Factory have been mentioned a couple of times on Trevor Brown's blog and I've finally been able to get in touch with the artist in Tokyo who makes these. There are MANY designs but very limited quantities of all of them.

Each charm is handmade - hand painted, hand tied and initialed by the artist. They'll look super cute hanging from your cell phone, or as a necklace pendant, a zipper pull, a purse charm, or just a cute little piece of handmade shibari or kinbaku art!

Three new SIGNED offset prints by Toshio Saeki are great examples of why he is the master of eroguro:

Toshio Saeki print 8Toshio Saeki print 9Toshio Saeki print 10

Toshio Saeki Print 10

Toshio Saeki's works illustrate an erotic nightmare world and allow us to peep in on what is going on behind closed doors (and in bedrooms and dungeons!).
