schönes buch, liebevoll überarbeitet!
ja... das buch ist gut, allerdings kostet es bei
amazon.com nur $42 und nicht wie hier
behauptet wird über $60.
daher halte ich einen preis von 72 euro für
zuviel. dafür kann aber das buch nix ;))
natürlich wissen wir alle dass es teuer werden
kann sich ein buch aus den usa importieren zu
lassen; warscheinlich ist dass der grund warum
das buch hier fast doppelt so teuer angepriesen

A beautiful, beautiful volume 20. März 2002
Von Michael Callaghan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
If you have the Taschen reprints of the collected Bizarre magazines and are wondering about this book - as I was - don't worry. This book is almost all different material, a good portion of it previously unpublished, and the quality of the edition is high enough to make it a keepsake in anyone's library. John Willie was, without equivocation, the master of genteel fetish art, technically beautiful illustrations of gorgeous women simultaneously in formal attire and bondage. If it sounds quirky, it is, and it is that quirkiness married to Willie's technical prowess and self-restraint which makes this collection as intriguing - and engaging - as it is. There is no sex here, and no full nudity. If you've never seen this work, imagine a Vargas or Elvgren print but with the pretty girl not smiling, but bound somehow or being costumed and you begin to get an idea of what John Willie was doing with his illustrative life.
BUT - just imagining these images does them no justice. Willie never used any 'dirty' words, and his characters are styled after 1930's and '40 serial digest types, even as his work moved into the 1960's. The overall effect is that of a fully conceived world, a complete universe of Willie's - and ours, as the readers - shared neurosis, of our fully realized but morally checked 'fun and nonsense' (Willie's words, not mine).
I am enamoured of this work. It is aesthectically beautiful, it is emotionally engaging, it is affectionate and ironic all at the same time. Where Bizarre magazine left off this volume continues, and where Bizarre is a rememberance this volume is better described as a tribute.
And a more fitting tribute could not be produced. This is an oversized hardcover, cloth bound and with a cloth bookmark - the binding and cover are both very well made, obviously a labor of publishing love. The paper stock is very thick (unlike the Taschen Bizarre collection) and acid-free. The cover of this book is stunning, and even from the spine a beautiful illustration of Gwendoline is visible when the volume is shelved. This is a bibliophile's book, something we see less and less of these days, whose physical presentation was designed to compiliment its content.
Included are also some sketches and unfinished work, and it is always fun to see an artist we admire in their off-the-cuff moments, forming ideas or simply riffing without worrying about an audience. A brief - the best I've read - biography is included, as well as several photographs of the artist himself. There are several full color plates as well, watercolors of Willie taken from private collections.
A beautiful, absolutely beautiful volume. Of the many books I buy and sell and trade, this will stay in my library forever. I can offer no higher recommendation.

The perils of Gwendoline, in a non PC world. 2. Oktober 2000
Von wigwambam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautifully produced book, a new printing with additional information and working drawings never published before. In this is a weird world, where the normal rules do not apply, all the (invariably beautiful) women are both strong and submissive, a weird dichotomy that seems to make sense in John Willie's loopy world.

No situation domestic or public takes place without someone, usually the innocent abroad (Gwendoline), falling into the clutches of the nefarious villain, his mistress and the wicked maid.

There is also mysterious secret agent (U69) who rescues Gwendoline, only to torment the strangely receptive girl.

Do not give this to the innocent or the young, however anyone who can appreciate the charm and strange innocence of his art, and this is art, this is a must have. Mad, bad and wonderful to know.

All the New Photos!!!! 29. November 2001
Von Jaclyn Dianne Vanderhoef - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I ordered this book as a Christmas gift for my husband. He has yet to see it, of course, but WOW! I love it! To see the many works that were previously unpublished, what can I say. John Willie really had a hand to match where his heart was! It's a great book for any one who loves erotic art or is familiar with the story of Gwen!

Von Mr J L Meaton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
As a UK fan of Love Bondage and simular material, I've waited for years to obtain a copy of this book. I can assure all wondering about the purchase that the wait was well worth it. The quality of the illustrations is exelent and there is plenty of bonus material contained within it's bulging covers. Well done the publishers, you made a UK fan very happy this Chrstmas!
Beautiful, lovingly rendered 1940's 'R' rated B&D artwork. 4. Dezember 2013

I originally had the 1974 version of this book, but lost it years ago. I am glad I bought a new copy.

Some of the work in the back of the book -is- duplicated from the front. (the first being the original 46 page "Sweet Gwendoline" and the reprinting in the back being the finally completed "Sweet Gwendoline and the Race for the Gold Cup", containing the missing final 4 pages)

This hefty book contains much (if not quite all) of John Willie's art, but is does contain ALL he ever drew of Sweet Gwendoline, including the two versions of the "Gold Cup" listed above, and Gwendoline & U89's subsequent adventures: The 16 page "Escape Artist"; and the amazing 44 page black & white water-colored "The Missing Princess", which I consider the greatest example ever of his work.

There are also several incomplete series (with the last few pages pencil drafts) of the 16 page "The Wasp Women" (with Gwendoline), and the 40 page "The Golden Idol" (with just Sir d'Arcy & the Countess)

The book also has a very comprehensive history of John Willy himself, examples of his work for other magazines (including 10 episodes of his ongoing 2-page humorous series "The Diary of a French Maid", a delightful reprinting of 2 letters Willy wrote to a friend on the proper ways to bind and gag a woman (with 26 mini-illustrations) and finally: 68 full page drawings, illustrations and color plats of his best work.

368 pages of soft-core bondage illustrations from the heyday of Klaw, Willie, Stanton & Bilbrew!

(and note: the only connection between John Willie's Sweet Gwendoline and the horrible movie "The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik-Yak" is her name, and the fact that women get tied up some of the time!)
