Description

With hundreds of rare and extraordinary images culled from his influential 24-year career, this volume illustrates the story of the first black career fetish artist in history: Gene Bilbrew, a.k.a. “Eneg,” a man whose unique vision redefined cutting-edge art of the 1950s and ’60s for renegade publisher Irving Klaw, who also worked with Bettie Page. Explores his sometimes contentious, love-hate relationship with fellow fetish pioneer Eric Stanton.

Includes complete comic strips with girl fights, domination stories and more; fetish paperback covers; covers and art from Exotique, Fantasia, Ultra, Fads and Fancies. High heels, corsets, gags, nylons, pony girls, etc. Wild, over the top bondage fashions and scenes. Photos of Bilbrew himself, and his fellow band members when he was a singer in the forties with The Basin Street Boys.

Tracing his life from childhood in Los Angeles to his vocal group days with The Mellow Tones and the Basin Street Boys, to his sudden rise as a “bizarre art” rebel in New York City, Gene Bilbrew Revealed presents a vibrant overview of his work for renegade publishers Irving Klaw, Leonard Burtman, Edward Mishkin and Stanley Malkin.

A first-ever, profusely illustrated look at this underground comic artist, who was drawing bondage, high heels and erotic fantasy work in the early years of classic vintage fetish art.

From fetish art specialist, Richard Pérez Seves, author of Eric Stanton & the History of the Bizarre Underground, and Charles Guyette: Godfather of American Fetish Art. Art by Gene Bilbrew, Van Rod, and Gilbert
