About this title


Illustrations employing various color schemes, including black and white, primary colors, and less-common hues such as lilac and mauve, add life to this two-part volume of stories dealing with desire and passion, originally published in French in 1908. The first section, Colors, consists of 13 stories about women who demonstrate various aspects of eroticism—naïveté, innocence, guilt, eagerness, perversity, masochism, sadism—each assigned a different color. Eighteen short stories presented in the style of prose poetry and concerning painful and ambiguous carnality comprise the second half, Things of Old.


Ilustraciones que emplean varias combinaciones de colores, incluyendo blanco y negro, colores primarios y tonos menos comunes como lila y malva, animan este volumen en dos partes de cuentos de deseo y pasión, originalmente publicado en francés en 1908. La primera sección, Colores, consta de 13 cuentos sobre mujeres que demuestran varios aspectos del erotismo—ingenuidad, inocencia, culpabilidad, afán, perversidad, masoquismo, sadismo—cada uno con un color designado distinto. Dieciocho cuentos cortos presentados en el estilo de poesía en prosa y acerca de la carnalidad dolorosa y ambigua componen la segunda mitad, Antigüedades.
