Venus in Furs, by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, is THE classic romance of tragic 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 - 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 films, songs and the stage play "Venus in Furs," by David Ives. Sardax describes his own new edition of Venus in Furs as his labour of love. A de-luxe new hardback, this edition is printed on super quality art paper. 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.
