    Book: "Erotique" - Masterpieces of Erotic Photography

    Hi

    In Denmark we have a huge Book Sale every year where one can save up to 90% on books.
    I have bought a bunch today, and among them I have a book called "Erotique" and it is a compilation of erotic photography from 1850 up to now.
    I got it for 69 DKR (approx. $14, £6). Format is approx. 5x7 inches. 224 pages.

    GREAT BOOK!

    Is this another book full of bodies that have been photoshopped? Body shapes sliced and softened into perfect shape? Digital or B&W? Or is this no longer an issue here?
    Either way, the cover shows a perfectly beautiful form that even I as a female can appreciate.

    Since the images, you say, date from as early as 1850, It's my guess that when the term 'photoshop' is applied, it refers to a store from which photography supplies can be purchased.

    Just think though, all the nubile and voluptuous models from that early era would now be over 150 years old. Hmmmm.....

    Some has been PS'ed, but a lot are older pre-digital photos (1850-now). The photos are both natural and futuristicly; color and BW. Keep in mind that the book is a compilation with photos by many photogs. Some are normal nudy shots and some are quite S/M'ish and fetishy.
    The cover represents the quality pretty good.

    That reminds me why Ansel Adams didn't do nudes... he tried a new erogenous zone system, and always got stuck in zone 1.

    I always thought it was because he tried to lay down a good black first.
