About this Item

PROFUSELY ILLUSTRATED in full-color, erotic, nude chinese photography with many full page. "For thousands of years the delights of the Chinese bedchamber and forbidden erotica were guarded from Westerners. You may have heard of the Chinese emperor's thousand concubines. You may have seen Chinese beauties of the Ching Dynasty in films like the Last Emperor. You might have an impression that all these ancient beauties were timid, elegant and charming. That is true. But you might also want to know more about their loves and hates, laughter and sorrow too. 'Centuries of Chinese Nude in Photography' is a photo album, fascinating biography, an incomparable collector's item. Through the eyes of the photographer, you will be able to visualize the naked truth of the secret lives of these famous Chinese beauties. Some were famous historical figures. Some bore legendary names. Some were highly regarded prostitutes. Their stories have spread from one generation to another, for hundreds of years. They were social favourites and the source of inspiration for some of the greatest poets. Imagine that you have penetrated through the silk screens of their bedchambers, you will be amazed by these totally different encounters. Whether you are a Chinese enthusiast or a connoisseur of art and photography, 'Centuries of Chinese Nude in Photography' is truly treasure." 243 pages.
