Tracing the rise of commercial fetish art from its shadowy beginnings in the 1940s to its acceptance in the 1970s, this illustrated biography explores the unconventional life and art of Eric Stanton, a pioneering sexual fantasist who helped shape the movement. With more than 400 rare images, including all of his paperback covers in full color and many strips including the infamous "Sweeter Gwendoline" with Steve Ditko. Includes his infamous circle of patrons, publishers, and cult icons populating his subterranean world, including Irving Klaw, John Willie, Bettie Page, and Gene Bilbrew.

Interviews with Stanton’s family and closest associates. It is the untold, secret history of a misunderstood culture, the abuses of government authority, social intolerance, and gangsters. But above all, it is a tale about survival against all odds and an artist who had the courage to stay true to himself.

Profusely illustrated, full index, chapter footnotes, full bibliography. This is really a first class work, informative while it is revealing with the mass of images, many never before collected, of bondage, dominance and submission, high heels, nylons, girl fights, and all of Stanton's fetish themes.
