- Full Description
He was America's premier fetish artist along with John Willie (Sweet Gwendoline). Stanton produced paperback book covers, magazine illustrations, comics and even wrestling videos, but what he is best known for is his self-published 16- to 28-page booklets produced between 1982 and 1999. Stanton made his desires the center of his art, pouring his passions onto the page. These preferences included bondage, female dominance and fighting, mixed gender wrestling, and lesbian lust.
Perhaps if the man born Ernest Stanzoni (1926-1999) in New York City, 1926, had grown taller, all would have been different. As it happened, he topped out around 5'5" (165 cm), making him smaller and weaker than many women, and rather than bemoan this shortcoming, he chose to eroticize it. Then, like Robert Crumb and Tom of Finland to follow, he put his fantasies on paper.
These booklets best represent Stanton's rich and complex fantasy life, as well as the lives of his fans, whose fantasies he also incorporated. This new edition of The Dominant Wives & Other Stories, brings together the finest of the Stantoons, along with Stanton's most famous series for Irving Klaw: Bound in Leather, parts 1 and 2. Done in pencil, pen and ink, gouache and mixed media, these 20 stories represent the best of Stanton, who himself represents the best of fetish. Full nudity.
